PBJC Embarks On A New Era; 
5,000-plus Enrollment Expected 

Orientation Procedures for New Freshmen 

On Schedule; Registration Starts Next Week

By Dave Doucette 

The freshman entering Palm 
Beach Junior College this fall steps 
into a world of unprecedented 
growth in campus construction, 
activities, and curriculum, 

The PBJC freshman becomes a 
member of the student body dt one 
of the largest and fastest growing 
junior colleges in the state. Of 
Florida's nearly thirty junior col- 
leges, Palm Beach Junior College 
is the oldest publicly supported 

Born in 1933 in a building on the 
Palm Beach High School campus, 
PBJC moved to the de-activated 
Morrison Field in West Palm 
Beach after the end of World War 
TJ. Forced to move to the Lake 
Park Town Hall when the Korean 
War began, Palm Beach Junior 
College found a permanent home 
in 1956 when the present campus 
was established. 

Palm Beach Junior College en- 
tered a new era of growth last 
year with the construction of 
several new buildings and the col- 
lege's first full year in inter-col- 
legiate athletic competition. 

The Learning Resources Center, 
the Technical Laboratories, the 
Central Mechanical Building, the 
Data Processing Building, and ex- 

tensive additions to the Dental 
Hygiene Building, Gymnasium, 
and Student Activity Center were 
erected last year. Additional build- 
ings will begin construction this 

Palm Beach Junior College's 
inter-collegiate sports program suf-

Planning For Year Begins 

SGA, ISSC, I-C Sports, I-R 
Board, and Phi Rho Pi are the 
guiding bodies of the bulk of the 
student activities at Palm Beach 
Junior College. 

The aforementioned groups have 
already begun planning activities 
for this school year. Student 
Government Association elections, 
social club Rush, and cheerleader 

tryouts occur within the next three 
weeks. Inter eollegi ate sports try- 
outs, intramural activities, and the 
first drama department produc- 
tions are in the early organiza- 
tional stages for the year and 
should begin soon. 

Pages seven and eight of this 
issue contain information concern- 
ing these events.

Timed Bulletin Boards 

With the increased enrollment this fall the bulletin boards 
available for student use will be more crowded than ever. 

Presently, all material put on these boards must be ap- 
proved by the Dean of Student Personnel's office. This material 
is simply approved, posted, and then remains on the bulletin 
boards indefinitely. 

In one instance last year posters for the Civitan-Civinette 
Christmas Card Sale were still on the bulletin boards as late 
as March. Posters for dances, concerts, movies, plays, et al, 
remain up long after the events mentioned on the posters 
have been held. 

The solution to this problem is to institute a system similar 
to that used at Georgetown University, where material for 
bulletin boards is approved for a certain length of time, then 

This system would work here if a group such as the 
Student Government Association or a service club was dele- 
gated to remove all illegal material from the bulletin boards, 
provided this system of approval is adopted. 

A Good Senate 

The upcoming Senate elections on September 9 give this 
year's Student Government Association officers an opportunity 
to demonstrate their willingness to make this year SGA's best. 

The success or failure of SGA President, Chuck Massey, 
this year could possibly be determined by the manner in 
which he and his fellow officers conduct these elections. 

The Beachcomber hopes that the SGA officers can draw a 
well qualified slate of senatorial candidates, as the twenty? 
seven members of this year's Student Senate will represent a 
student body of nearly 4,000. 

A good Senate will mean a good year for SGA, and v.ce 

And Thanks To You .. . 

The Beachcomber would like to thank the Student Person- 
nel Department, in particular Dean of Student Personnel, Paul 
J Glynn and Dean of Men, Robert C. Moss, for aiding us in 
the publication of this special orientation issue. 

Without their assistance the ma|or portion of these eight 
pages could not have been possible.

To the freshman: 

This year promises to be the biggest year 
in Palm Beach Junior- College history, with 
a 30% increase over last year's freshman 

To the new student 'Palm Beach Junior 
College has its advantages as well as its 
disadvantages. Naturally, our school is en- 
larging to meet this increase in enrollment. 
However, with more and more students 
attending PBJC, the competition is increas- 

PBJC offers to you a fine and varied 
selection of social and service clubs whose 
records of achievements are widely ac- 
claimed locally and statewide. 

Our sports program is increasing in size 
and stature every year, with scholarships 
available in this area for the first time in 
PBJC history. 

However, social and service clubs as well 
as sports are all extra-curricular. PBJC 
has a reputation of being one of the best 
junior colleges in the U.S., with students 
attending from practically every state. 

In closing, let me welcome everyone who 
is entering PBJC for the first time. If you 
need any assistance at all during the 
coming year,, please feel free to call upon 
myself or any other officer of your Student 
Government Association. 

Once again, welcome and good luck.

The five-man delegation from 
PBJC's Circle K club returned 
from the recent Circle K Inter- 
national Convention, held in Dal- 
las, Texas, with two awards: sec- 
ond place in total achievement 
and an honorable mention for its 
single service project. 

Competing in the "gold" divi- 
sion, composed of clubs with thir- 
ty-five or more members, Circle 
K lost its first place bid to the 
dub from University of South- 
eastern Louisiana. The local club 
'won first place in the same divi- 
sion on the state level. 

The representatives from PBJC 
attended the convention in Dallas 
With financial assistance from the 
Southside, Northwood, and Down- 
town West Palm Beach Kiwanis 
Clubs, and by the Delray Kiwanis 
Club. Attending the convention 
from here were Joel Wadsworth, 
Kyle Turner, Ken Nemeth, John 
Tallentire, and Paul Jalbert. 

Honorable mention for the Sin- 
gle 'Service Project, which was 
the sponsorship of a Boy Scout 
Troop for retarded boys, came 
as an unexpected award. 

"This is extremely rare," said 
Ken Nemeth, past president of 
Circle K. "If you get one of the 
top awards you are almost never

candidates competing for twelve 
seats Two hundred and fifty-eight 
sophomores voted Friday The 
newly elected sophomoie Sena- 
tors, in oider of finish, are Jane 
Antonsen, Bill Sedmak, Chris Ste- 
phens, Chnsti Hattan, Raul Ram- 
irez, John Foster, Bev Hoffman, 
Dennis Brown, Buit Wilkins, Kar- 
en Jacobs, Barbara Calhoun, and 
Linda Cavil I 

Unsuccessful candidates for the 
sophomore seats were Ginnie Col- 
lier, Julie Longson, Noreen Reilly, 
Donna Blair, John Bnckey, Bill 
Edixon, Norma Mann, and Linda 

An interesting note in the sopho- 
more race was that Jane Anton- 
sen, who received the most votes, 
failed to post a .single campaign 
poster. She was a freshman Sena- 
tor last year. 

When contacted and informed 
of her first place finish without 
any campaigning, Miss Antonsen 
said, "This is really an eye-open- 
ing experience I must have re- 
ceived the most votes simply be- 
cause my name appeared first on 
the ballot." 

She summed up much of the 
general feeling toward the elec- 
tion when she commented, "Let's 
just say I lucked out." 

Interest in Student Government, 
Association elections has been de- 3 
dining over the past year At 
last spring's SGA Executive De- 
partment elections a mere 450 stu- 
dents turned out to elect the cur- 
rent administration. The number 
of voters would have been even 
smaller if a last minute write-in 
campaign hadn't forced a larger

SGA Treasurer, Lisa Dulany 
announced Monday that the treas- 
urers of all clubs receiving SGA

in the SAC BuiMing. She said that 
the clubs wouldn't receive their 
funds until they got in touch with 

Jenne, was elected in a special 
presidential election. 

Noticeably present at the polls 
throughout the day Friday were 
several of the senatorial candi- 
dates. None were actually cam- 
paigning at the polls, but at least 
one candidate was assisting poll 
workers in helping voters sign 
the register and operate the vot- 
ing machines. 

Section Two of Article VI of the 
SGA Constitution states, "No can- 
didate shall assist at the polls." 
The entire election could be con- 
tested because of the violation of 
this rule and, if contested and 
voided, a new election would have 
to be held 

The remaining five vacant 
freshman Senate seats will be 
filled by a special election, to be 
held in the near future Applica- 
tions for these seats may be 
picked up in the SGA office or 
from Miss McNeely, Director of 
Student Activities, at a time yet 
to be announced.

Election Problems 

After the shoddy handling of last Friday's Senate elections 
the Student Government Association should take a good look 
ai itself and decide if they are setting a good example for the 
student body. 

The running of the elections left much to be desired 
insofar as legality and organization are concerned. 

The SAC Lounge far from resembled a polling place 
Friday as throughout the day candidates stood around the 
voting machines, and at least one candidate was seen assisting 
at the polls. The SGA Constitution clearly states that candi- 
dates may not assist at the polls. 

Determining the eligibility of the voters was a complete 
failure. All a student had to do to vote was to sign his name 
on the register as a freshman ox sophomore. Few, if any, 
had to prove they were freshmen or sophomores and eligible 
to vote. 

There were several occasions Friday when students voted 
twice or voted as freshmen when they were actually sopho- 
mores, and vice versa. 

The election could be easily contested and voided but we 
feel that the SGA officers and newly elected Senators would 
gain little by being forced to go through another election. 
The Student Government Association is faced with a tre- 
mendous amount of work to do and another election would 
only complicate the matter. 

The SGA has been made aware of its mistakes and the 
upcoming election to fill the five vacant freshman Senate 
seats will be an opportunity to prove that they have learned a 
lesson from last Friday's fiasco. 

ters ..J Serfice 

Letters to the Editor ... one of the greatest services the 
Beachcomber offers the student. 

By printing letters to the Editor, we can offer the student 
a method of voicing his opinion on campus happenings. A 
student who writes intelligent letters to the Editor is a student 
who does more than read the Beachcomber; he cares. 

Letters to the Editor must be limited to on-campus affairs, 
as it is not the place of a junior college newspaper to provide 
space for students to comment on off-campus events. Local

Albee's Virginia Woolf: Learning An 
What Does It Mean? At PBJC's Science 

by Bob Greene 

During the 1960-1961 theatre sea- 
son in New York, Arthur Kopit 
brought to the stage, "Oh Dad, 
Poor Dad, Momma's Hung You 
In The Closet And I'm Feeling So 
Sad." This play, as well as many 
others of the time, was written 
with one basic question in mind — 
". . . what is the meaning of 
this?" Indeed, Edward Albee had 
this question in mind when he 
wrote "Who's Afraid of Virginia 
Woolf?"; if not, to himself, he en- 
visioned the various people of the 
audience asking it. 

To better understand "Virginia 
Woolf" one must understand Al- 
bee, for in all of his plays, it is 
the "human condition" that is un- 
der attack. He uses sharp wit, an 
intense skill and concise dialogue 
to accomplish this end. He tends 
to dramatize a hatred, HIS hatred, 
for complacency, and, therefore, 
lacks any concern for what may 
be left of Man's dignity. 

The basic question that has been 
tossed back and forth from critic 
to critic for the past three years 
is just this: Is "Virginia Woolf" 
realistic? My personal opinion is 
that she is; sometimes too much 
so The screen story depicts a 
marriage in which the man and 
his wife destroy each other with 
malice. v 

The total effect of the picture 
would have to vary with the indi- 
vidual. One could be either de- 
pressed or discontented — but not 
bored, for the dialogue moves at 

such a fast pace that one's undi- 
vided attention is demanded. On 
the other hand, one could be com- 
pletely relaxed, totally uplifted, 
and somewhat enthusiastic; but it 
would be an impossibility to find 
yourself possessing any greater 
understanding of people. In fact, 
one's understanding may be some- 
what clouded. 

The performances given are be- 
yond compare. Elizabeth Taylor 
is, in a word, exquisite. She can 
make you laugh, she can make 
you shudder, she can make you 
cry. The most amazing charac- 
teristic of her entire performance 
is her eyes. Never before have 
such strong feelings been ex- 
pressed in one pair. 

Burton is more-or-less adequate. 
His basic fault was one of inde- 
cision; that is, he seemed as 
though he really couldn"t make 
up his mind as to just what kind 
of actor he was. He would spout 
out his lines with Shakespearean 
proficiency, then turn around to 
mumble and garble, a la Brando. 
This was somewhat disappointing, 
for he encountered no such prob- 
lem in "The Spy Who Came In 
From The Cold." 

Sandy Dennis appears as the 
young Biology professor's wife. 
She gives the role of a truly in- 
sipid little dame meaning and 
depth. She really doesn't know 
what is going on, and as long as 
she is supplied enough Brandy to 
relieve her of any pain, she is 
entirely happy and completely

Zonta Scholarship 

The Zonta Club of Lake Worth 
recently donated $500 in scholar- 
ship funds to the work-study pro- 
gram here. 

In effect, they have made avail- 
able $5,000 in scholarship funds 
under the system by which the 
Federal government matches the 
college's funds 10 to 1 with funds 
of their own. 

"Zonta International is very 
much interested M in helping stu- 
dents to complete their educa- 
tion," said Mrs. Emilie Engle, 
president of the Lake Worth club, 
"and we are pleased to have this 
means of making our contribution 
go farther." 

Students receiving these and 
other work-study funds work in

Charles A. Atwell, Dean of Men

Awarded a Kellogg Fellowship, 
Dean Atwell is assisted by a grant 
from the Anson A. Bigelow Me-

We're Appreciated 

A certificate of appreciation to 
Palm Beach Junior College for 
outstanding service to the coun- 
try's Youth Opportunity Campaign 
has been received by George T. 
Tate, assistant director of services. 

The certificate, signed by Presi- 
dent Johnson and Vice-President 
Hubert Humphrey, was awarded 
in recognition of the college's ef- 
forts in hiring young workers 
whenever possible. 

A letter of transmittal from 
Vice-President Hubert Humphrey 
to Tate stated: "Our youth and 
our nation are being greatly 
assisted by your action, and I 
congratulate you on the role you 
are playing in opening opportuni- 
ties to youths."

by Raul Bamirez 
Names are often misleading, and 
this is especially true in the case 
of PBJC's Science Club. 

To the student who is not ac- 
quainted with the activities of the 
club, its name would suggest a 
membership limited to science 
majors and perpetually involved 
in a discussion about the proper- 
ties of the atom, protons, and 

Nothing could be further from 
the truth. Membership to PBJC's 
Science Club is open to any stu- 
dent interested in the physical and 
social sciences, and its activities 
include field trips to different 
points of scientific interest, as 
well as films on subjects of gen- 
eral interest to the students. 

Last year, the club visited the 
University of Miami Medical 
School, where several of the club 
members whowere interested in 
medicine had a chance to see how 
the dissection of a cadaver is 
done. While in the same trip, 
another group of students visited 
Jones & Schully Orchid Growers, 
where they saw orchids in vari- 
ous stages of growth, some valued 
at $500 or more. 

Other activities of the club last 
year included an overnight camp- 
ing trip to Key Largo to study 
Marine Biology and a visit to the 
phosphate mines at Bartow in 
search for fossils. 

The main purpose of the Science 
Club is for the "exchange of sci- 
entific ideas among students and 
faculty on campus", commented 
Mr. Richard Gross, co-sponsor of 
the club. The club also exchanges 
ideas with students and clubs in 
other colleges and universities. 

For the 1966-1967 year, a rock- 
hunting trip to Tampa Bay is 
planned. Other tentative plans call 
for a weekend camping trip to 
some point of interest and a movie 
on skindiving taken by students. 
Guest speakers are presented 
at regular club meetings through- 
out the school year, offering an 
opportunity for the students to 
learn while enjoying themselves 
and carrying out constructive

Fall Enrollment Figures 
Topple Prefious Records 

A record enrollment was set 
August 15-19 during the fall reg- 
istration with an increase of 70 
students over last year's total en- 
rollment. A total of 4584 were en- 
rolled this fall which includes 
3,062 day students and 1,522 eve- 
ning students. 

Although the fall enrollment \vas 
less than had been anticipated, 
"We have about the right number 
of students in proportion to the 
financing and the equipment of 
the college," commented Dr. 
Harold Manor, PBJC president.

For never bating p'aved or-

th? sport he liked least Then

Obtaining hints from Riviera 
Beach's cage coach, Mickey Neal, 
aad PBJC's own Coach Jim Tan-

year. H«s single game high point 
total of IS against Miami-Dade 
was overshadowed by his 15 re-

time now for his "ex-favorite" 
sport, baseball. As a pitcher for 
the North Palm Beach Pony 
League district all-stars he once 
hurled a nc-hit game. 

Until the first game rolls around 
on November 28 Pacer fans will 
be waiting to see the "big L" in 
action, along with fellow team- 
mates of the "green and gold."

Try-out procedures and require-

Daugherty takes over for Dr. 
William Stokes, who resigned at 
the end of the Winter term to ac- 
cept the position as director of 
athletics at the new south campus 
of Miami-Dade Junto 1- College. 

Like all inter-collegiate sports 
coaches this year, Daugherty has 
scholarships available for the win- 

ter term, but has not yet made 
any commitments. 

"Eligibility is such a big factor 
that I really prefer to wait until 
after I get some idea as to who 
will make the grade academi- 
cally," Daugherty said. 

"I know of five or six good 
golfers who plan to come to school 
at PBJC, and if all of them are 
eligible and turn out for the 
team, we could have another 
good year," he speculated.

Year's Activities 

Interested in swishing a basket- 
ball, spiking a volleyball, smash- 
ing a tennis ball, or rolling a 
strike? That's just a sample o, 
what you can do if you partici- 
pate in PBJC's intramural and 
recreational activities for the fall 
term. And it's all been paid by 
your student activity fee. 

The purpose of intramurals is 
to give every student an oppor- 
tunity to participate in an activity 
of his or her choice, providing 
this student meets the eligibility 
rules set up by the I R Board. 

The I-R Board staff and mem 
bers were named at the first 
meeting. They were: Women's di- 
rector—Deborah Dahlen, assistant

Jack Stockton, scouted local sur

"I watched most of the Legi 
games this summer," the form 
Dan McCarthy High School coa? 
said. "There's a lot of talent i 
this county and I think this sell'- 
has made a mistake in the pastt 
not utilizing it." 

Keeping this in mind StockU 
has awarded three scholarship 
thus far — to Joey Hag in, ( 
outfielder from Palm Beach Wi 
School, Mike Bowman, an 1' 
fielder from Riviera Beach Htg 1 
and Harry Herbold, a pitch 
from Boca Raton High. 

Despite these seven schola - 
ships, Coach Stockton has a pro 1 
lem. The Pacer baseball squs 
won only three of its sixtee 
games last year and of the n 
turning members of that tear 
only three are academically elig 
ble to compete in 1967. 

Things are looking up in 11

games have been scheduled fcVol. 
this year than were played a r ■'■■ ■■'

"We hope to get as close to 1

The Beachcomber has been 
named All-American in the 75th 
Associated Collegiate Press News- 
paper Critical Service for the sec- 
ond semester of 1965-66. 

According to the information 
accompanying the results, "All- 
American honor rating represents 
a 'superior' rating and is reserved 
for the top publications". It is the 
highest of four classes in the 
A.C.P. Critical Service. 

The last time the Beachcomber 
was rated, the second semester of 
the 1961-62 school year, a third di- 
vision rating was earned. 

Each newspaper entering the 
critical service was judged in 
comparison with those produced 

by other schools of similar en- 
rollment, by like methods of pub- 
lication, and with the same fre- 
quency of issue per semester. 
The All- American rating the 
Beachcomber received indicates 
how it compared with other pa- 
pers in its classification through- 
out the nation. 

The communication further 
stated that every effort was made 
to judge publications on the ef- 
fectiveness with which they served 
their individual schools. 

The 'Comber was rated in three 
categories: coverage, content, and 
physical properties. Of 4000 possi- 
ble points in these areas, the pa- 
per amassed well over 3700 points. 

The judge's comments varied: 

The Campus 'Combings column 
was highly commended as good 
useage of space to capture more 
campus activities. 
•Dewey Doer, the 'Comber's own 
original cartoon character who 
was introduced last year, im- 
pressed the judges with his doings 
on campus. 

They further stated their admi- 
ration for the use of on-campus 
editorial subject matter. They also 
commented on our editorial free- 
dom and wise use of it with justi- 
fiable restraint. 

The front page was judged to 
be "always neat and Interesting, 
especially appealing in calling 

attention to major stories on the 
inside pages." 

Terry Bates and Jon Miller, who 
served as editors during the win- 
ter term, are due a major portion 
of the credit for this award. 
Bates, a journalism major here, 
is now attending the University of 
Florida. Miller is currently em- 
ployed by Britton Press, newly 
contracted printers for the Beach- 
comber. He plans to return to 
PBJC for the Winter Term.

tor, who is also attending the U.

vidual pictures of students as pos- 
sible,"< said Miss Collins. Hoping 
to achieve this, the Galleon staff 
has made arA-angements to take 
student pictures free s of charge. 
Previously, a $1.75 fee was re- 
quired, with the students receiv- 
ing six wallet-size photos. 

"The pictures will be free be- 
cause we want to give the student 
something, instead of selling him 
something that he might not nec- 
essarly want," commented Dr. 
James Miles, yearbook advisor. 

Pictures for the Galleon are be- 
ing taken today and Thursday in 
the SAC north lounge from 9 a.m. 
to 4 p.m. for students whose last 
names begin with the letters N 
through Z. Monday and Tuesday 
photos of those whose names be- 
gin with A through M were taken. 
Faculty photos are to be taken 

Friday, as well as those of stu- 
dents who missed their earlier 

Another new rule calls for the 
different campus organizations to 
be responsible for their own group 
pictures, according to Miss. Col- 
lins. Additional information on this 
procedure is being sent to officers 
of the respective clubs. 

New Galleon associate editor is 
Phil Weinrich. Karen Jacobs is 
undertaking the duties of organi- 
zation editor, while Diane Russell

Boards Before Senate 

Tomorrow a long-needed piece of legislation will come 
before the Student Senate. 

Authored and sponsored by Sophomore Senator Burt 
Wiikins, this legislation, in the form of constitutional amend- 
ments, calls for the establishment of a self-perpetuating Execu- 
tive Department. This is accomplished through the formation 
of a cabinet consisting of the chairmen of the six student 
boards, to he created by constitutional amendments. 

These seven-member boards encompass the areas of 
campus beautification, communications, elections, leadership 
and service, organizations, and spirit and traditions. The boards 
are self-perpetuating as four of the seven members of each 
committee for the fall and winter terms are selected the prev- 
ious spring. The remaining positions are filled in the fall. 

Senator Wiikins' amendments will give the Executive 
Department a cabinet to handle much of the work load. The 
Senate will also benefit from these constitutional amendments, 
as many of the menial tasks the Senate was forced to do before 
will be accomplished by the six boards. 

If these constitutional amendments are adopted by the 
Senate a special general election will be held to secure the 
approval of the students. 

We strongly suggest that the Senate adopt these amend- 
ments and put them before the students as soon as possible. 
The longer the Senate waits, the longer it will be before they 
can operate to their fullest potential. 

Cafeteria Offers Specials 

Thursday the cafeteria offered a luncheon special, featur- 
g steak, potatoes, salad, roll, and drink for seventy-nine cents, 
le regular price of this meal is estimated at a dollar. 

This is a move by new Cafeteria Manager, Ralph Kehoe, 
improve relations between the students and the cafeteria. 

We previously suggested that the cafeteria offer these 
specials as a means of getting more students to eat there. The 
ideal situation would be to offer a daily special and perhaps 
cut out some of the variety.

Adventure, Drama, 

September 21, 1966 Page 3 

by Bob Greene 

The television year 1966-1967, 
may go down in history as the 
"Year of the Great Battles" for 
reasons which are more than evi- 
dent. Never before has there been 
such ambitious enterprises under- 
taken for television; all program- 
ming is in color, a few of the sup- 
posedly "washed up" entertainers 
have returned (Gary Moore, Mil- 
ton Berle, Jean Arthur, Tarzan, 
etc. . . . ), and some of the past 
seasons' most resounding flops 
have returned for another chance 
in a tinted state. 

To return to the subject of the 
"Great Battles," I shall try to 
estimate (only fools make predic- 
tions) those programs which I 
fully expect to "bite the dust", 
either this December or next 

Sunday: "It's About Time", 
(CBS 7:30), alas, is doomed. Rea- 
son? Competition from both sides 
in the form of "Voyage to the 
Bottom of the Sea" and Walt Dis- 
ney, two of Sunday's strongest 
audience "pull" shows; and let 

us shed a tear for poor ol' Gary 
Moore, for many have tried, but 
none have succeeded in running 
"Bonanza" off, the range. 

Monday: "The Road West" 
seems to have gotten the rotten 
end of the stick in its time slot. 
At 9:00 when it airs on NBC, CBS 
runs its number 3 Neilson rater 
"The Andy Griffith Show", fol- 
lowed on ABC at 9:30 by "Peyton 
Place", a highly criticized show, 
but just as high in its ratings. 
Jean Arthur, must also face the 
''double whammy" of "The Big 
Valley" and NBC's "Run for 
Your Life". Earlier in the eve- 
ning, the new "Iron Horse" must 
face the truly ridiculous "Gilli- 
gan's Island", which should have 
gone off two years ago, and the 
just as inspired, "I Dream of 

Tuesday: Things tend to cool 
down on Tuesday, for the only 
matter of any significance is 
whether CBS's African adventure 
series "Daktari!" or ABC's "Com- 
bat" will either bend or break 
under the pressures of the newest 
form of espionage, "The Girl

Dear Editor; 

The west parking lot (if you 
can call it that) in front of the 
campus looks like a road course 
for a Green 'Beret tank division. 
The roads (choke) between park- 
ing spaces look like they've been 
under mortar fire since registra- 
tion and if you have time to 
search the "potholes" you're lia- 
ble to find a foreign car or two 
at the bottom. And to make mat- 
ters worse, the whole mucky mess 
is completely logged in for no 
other apparent reason than to 
keep the plague from spreading. 
Another insight into the telephone 
pole corral is the depressed feel- 
ing you get if you're lucky enough 
to make it down the mire passage 
way between rows and find there 
are no parking spaces left in that 
row. So, you put your mud en- 
gulfed vehicle in reverse and start 
the treacherous journey back, 
only to find a few other "die- 
hards" are plowing toward you, 
you already have come to. After 
much sloshing around, you find the 
last empty space on the lot and 
quickly pull in before anyone else 
can get it, only to open the door 
and find why it is the only spot left. 
Bound and determined to get to 
class you play like a guerrilla and 
wade through no-mans-land and 
carry your problem to the admin- 
istration in the form of mud in 
the halls and on classroom floors. 
I therefore recommend a new 
physical education course for any- 
one interested in going to Viet 
Nam. This course could feature 
guerrilla warfare and survival 
hikes. The facilities for such a 
course are available on campus 
so why not make use of them.

by Raul Ramirez 

Feature Editor 

One of the most exciting drama 
seasons in the history of PBJC is 
to begin here November 3, open- 
ing night for the presentation of 
Elmo Rice's "The Adding Ma- 

"The Crucible," a drama by 
Arthur Miller; "The Roar of the 
Greasepaint — The Smell of the 
Crowd," a musical comedy by 
Anthony Newley, and a Reader's 
Theatre from horror tales of Ed- 
gar Allan Poe complete the list 
of productions selected for this 
season by the drama department. 

"The Adding Machine" is Amer- 
ica's finest example of expres- 
sionism," said Mr. Francis Leahy, 
drama instructor. Expressionism 
was a move in the theatre that 
started in Germany after World 
War I, and through this technique 
the playwright tries to portray not 
only what's going on realistically 
but what's really going on in the 
mind of the person and how he 
sees various people and objects. 

This spectacular play evokes a 

ghastly vision of mechanized civ- 
ilization, stocked with shabby, 
commonplace little creatures. Mr. 
Zero, the main character, is a 
nonentity. An office clerk adding 
up figures for 25 years, he is to 
be replaced by an adding ma- 
chine. Desperate rather than re- 
belious, he kills the Boss and is 
tried and executed. After his 
death, Zero reaches the Elysian 
Fields, an idyllic country site, un- 
bounded by the prison walls of 
human conventions. 

"A Shriek of Death" is the ten- 
tative title for a Reader's Theatre 
to be presented December first 
through the fourth and which will 
feature tales of terror and poems 
by Edgar Allan Poe. 

Mr. Josh Crane, who is in charge 
of the production, commented: 
"I'm really looking forward to this 
production, which I'll do in the 
same style as we did "A Thurber 
Carnival" this past summer. Of 
course, the mood will be consid- 
erably different". Tryouts for "A 
Shriek of Death" are scheduled 
for mid-October. 

German Exchange Student 
Awarded MacArthur Grant 

A young man's hunger for 
knowledge, an alert educator, and 
a millionaire banker-developer 
with a need for a good assistant 
Maitre d' have combined for a 
good deal all the way around, for 
John D. MacArthur, the Colon- 
nades Hotel, and Palm Beach 
Junior College. 

The story began last winter 
when Gunther Schnoerzinger, from 
his home in Germany, wrote Dr. 
John Rudd, a director of CHRIE, 
the international Council of Hotel 
and Restaurant Institutional Edu- 
cation, and coordinator of the 
H6tel-Motel program at PBJC 

Dr. Rudd sympathized with 

Schnoerzinger' s desire for further 
education and experience in Amer- 
ica, and he and the young man 
found a willing ear and an open 
pocketbook in John D. MacArthur, 
millionaire banker, developer of 
much of northern Palm Beach 
County, and the owner of many 
businesses, including the Colon- 
nades Hotel. 

Results include the annual Mac- 
Arthur Award to the PBJC Hotel- 
Motel Food Service Program with 
Schnoerzinger as the first recipi- 
ent of a full year's scholarship, 
and a new assistant Maitre d' at 
the Colonnades with a very long 
last name.

Directed by Frank Coggin, Ar- 
thur Miller's "The Crucible" is to 
be presented March 1-4. "One of 
the two best plays Arthur Miller 
ever wrote, "The Crucible" takes 
place in Salem, Massachusetts, in 
1632, but is still very meaningful 
today in our society," said Mr. 

Possessor of a strong contem- 
porary meaning, "The Crucible" is 
a story of mass hysteria in the 
1600's witch-hunt, and has been 
described by a critic as "the 
tragedy of man's own stupidity". 

Closing the season's program is 
the June 1-4 presentation of "The 
Roar of the Greasepaint — The 
Smell of the Crowd", one of the 
most exciting musicals ever pre- 
sented in stage. Regarding the 
possibility of a joint presentation 
by the music and drama depart- 
ments, as it was done with "The 
Fantasticks", Mr. Hugh D. Albee, 
of the music department, stated: 
"We are giving serious considera- 
tion to performing "The Roar of 
the Greasepaint". -A decision will 
be made only after the music de- 
partment has considered the de- 
mands of the musical score, that 
is, what voices are required and 
what the instrumentation is for 
the orchestra." 

Final tryouts for "The Adding 
Machine" are being held today in 
the Auditorium, and rehearsals 
are to begin immediately after 
the cast is selected.

Tanner's Hope 
For Pacers: 
Optimistic ! 

by Mike Boggy 

PBJC's Pacers "will be battling 
for one of the top three positions 
in our conference this year" ac- 
cording to Coach Jim Tanner. 

Taking over the reins of the 
green and gold for its second year 
of intercollegiate cage competi- 
tion, Tanner feels he has the 
material of a tough team "if 
things progress as we expect 
them to". 

Most of the new members will 
be freshmen as only four letter- 
men are returning from last year's , 
squad that emerged victors of one 
game despite losing key players 
due to ineligibility rules, injuries, 
and job conflicts j 

The four sophomores reappearing 
for roil call this year will be "raz- 
zle-dazzle" guard Manuel Carreno, 
towering S'6Y 2 " Lloyd Dollins and 
playmakers Charlie Wright and 
Bob McGiIl. 

Carreno, starter in every game 
he played, averaged better than 
nine points a game last season. 

Dollins broke into the Pacer 
line-up midway through the sea- 
son and proved his worth with an 
aggressive rebounding style. 

Impressive frosh talent from 
around the state will make up the 
nucleus of Tanner's squad. Short 
on college experience, all Tan- 
ner's "recruits" have high school 
"credentials" that prove their 

From the other side of the 
coast, scholarship cagers Tom 
Nead and Steve McDonald aver- 
aged close to 14 points a game 
vhile leading the Plant City Plant- 
's to a conference crown. At 6' 4" 
\d could earn a starting role 
center with his top notch re- 
nding and defensive play, 
ake Worth High School alum- 
6'3" Bart Brooks, 6'2" Ric 
adshaw, and 6'1" Skip Measelle 
new an old battle for a starting 
jle at guard positions. 
Hailing Seacrest High are 6'0" 
guard Shawn McEIroy and 6'3" 
forward Lincoln Thomas. 

Another prospect for a center 
or forward position is 6'4" Kent 
Waters from Conference champion 
Orlando Evans. 

Also vying for a guard slot are 
5TCT Larry Evans of Roosevelt 
and 6'1" Bob Callahan of Sun 
coast Conference champion Riv- 
iera Beach.

Manuel Carreno 
Is Pacer 'Giant 1 

At 5'8" little Manuel Carreno 
casts the tallest shadow on the 
Pacer basketball court. 

Manny was a starter for every 
game but one last season and will 
be the most experienced letter- 
man returning to Coach Jim Tan- 
ner's squad 

Fleeing Cuba in 1961 Manny 
reeked havoc on opponents for 
Palm Beach Junior High and Con- 
niston before making his debut at 
Forrest Hill High School As a 
senior Manny led the Falcons to 
a respective third-place finish in 
the Suncoast Conference He was 
selected to the Christmas Tourna- 
ment first team and to the All- 
Conference Second Team 

Understanding English was most 

difficult for Manny when he 
came to the United States. He be- 
came most confused and frustrat- 
ed when his coach at Conniston 
tried to explain the basketball 

"I just couldn't understand his 
English," Manny said. "Finally 
he (the coach) had to diagram the 
plays with pencil and paper before 
I knew what to do." 

When asked what he thought 
about the outlook for this years 
team Manny commented, "It looks 
great We will have a faster, bet- 
ter balanced team with more ball 
control We have more height this 
year, but we still don't have any 
"giants" like Miami-D^de and St. 
Petersburg had last year."

Speech Intramurals 

For All Students 
On October 14 

A date has been set for the fall 
Intramural Speech Tournament, 
an annual event open to all stu-

and entertaining speaking will be 
held during the day and at 7.30 
in the evening on Friday, October 

The final rounds in each cate-

We Need An Election 

At the first Senate meeting of the year a decision was 
made to fill the five vacant freshman Senate seats by applica- 
tion to and approval by the Senate. 

A motion to conduct a general election for this purpose 
was defeated, and the application-approval method was se- 
lected. It is obvious that the Senate would rather vote among 
themselves to choose these five Senators, than to give the stu- 
dents a voice in their government. 

By Friday's deadline twenty students had applied. 

At Thursday's meeting a suggestion was made that the 
applicants appear before the Senate for questioning. Many 
Senators have already complained about too much time in the 
meetings being spent on trivial matters. Isn't it a greater waste 
of time to interrogate twenty candidates during a meeting? 

To rescind the motion establishing the applicant-approval 
method, and reconsider and approve the motion to hold an 
election would be the next logical step for the Senate to take 
if they are to give the freshmen a true representative voice in 
the Senate. 

Circle K Adopts Policy 

Circle K has adopted a new policy concerning assistance 
o other campus organizations because of the guilt complex 
hey and K-ettes received from the poorly run Senatorial elec- 
ions. Their members served as poll workers at the elections. 

A Beachcomber editorial criticizing the Senate elections 
>rompted their stand to refuse assistance to any such venture 
vithout assurance in advance of a well-planned and well- 
irganized activity. 

For the last several elections the Student Government 
Association has turned to these two service clubs for poll 
vorkers. The source of workers is now eliminated unless the 
!GA proves in advance that a well-organized election will be 

We have been campaigning for a stronger election code 
it SGA elections and Circle K now joins us in this campaign. 
Ve hope the SGA will take these suggestions and realize that 
ae idea of a make-shift election must come to an end. 

Ike Paddies At JC? 

The last issue of the Beachcomber carried a letter to the 
Iditor satirizing the condition of the parking lot west of 
ae Technical Building. 

Later that week a message concerning this parking prob- 
;m was found on a bulletin board. It read: "Special Notice 
. . Urgent ... to assist the 'War on Poverty; all public 
nnded students are urged to report to the west parking lot 
a Saturday morning for the purpose of planting rice. Bring 
our water buffalo and coolie hats. Bice seed will be provided." 

It's a good idea fellas but we heard from the superintend- 
at of physical plant and grounds that your rice paddies will 
e filled with shell rock soon and the entire area will be paved 
ithin the year.

y Agony And Ecstasy'— 
Michelangelo's Life 

by Bob Greene 

In Hollywood, as well as in the 
other world film capitals, suffer- 
ing proves to be big business. By 
way of this assumption one is 
forced to ask oneself if the thea- 
ter-going public has but degen- 
erated into a large ignominious 
group of masochists. "The Agony 
and the Ecstasy," obviously a 
misnomer, is evident, in title 
alone, of a guaranteed big box 
office return. Yet, if one ventures 
into the theatre expectant of 
viewing torture chambers replete 
with maniacal villains, the cor- 
ners of their mouths gleaming 
with spittle, grievous dissappoint- 
ment will closely follow his ex- 

True, suffering proves to be a 
major factor in the screenplay 
from Irving Stone's novel — the 
mental and oftentimes physical 
anguish endured by the sensitive 
sculptor, commissioned by his 
pontiff to set aside his hammer 
and chisel and take up palette to 
conquer the ceiling of the Vati- 
can's Sistine Chapel. This being 
the basic story line, the following 
will be my comment. 

Charlton Heston plays Michel- 
angelo Buonarratl, the strong, 
stone-faced, unflinching Florentine 
sculptor. Heston is truly a great 
actor, yet he seems to be having 
a great deal of difficulty emerg- 
ing from B.C. epics and Renais- 
sance roles. The performance 
given is more than adequate, for 
he seems to have mastered the 
art of placing his whole self into 
his parts. Whether or not he is 
a member of the "method" move- 
ment is an entirely vague ques- 
tion, hut he tends to lean in that 
direction. Yet, it never occurred 
to me that Heston, let alone 
Michelangelo, ever annunciated 
in a manner not unlike that of 
Rocky Grazziano. 

Any superlatives added to those 
already garnered by Rex Harri- 
son would only tend to be trite. 
To many, his portrayal may seem 
shocking, while to others it may 
seem false. Yet one must take 
into consideration that at the time 

depicted, Popes were Men; Men 
with strength. True, God created 
man with this and many other 
attributes, but since this period's 
end, the various succeeding pre- 
lates have failed to utilize these 
gifts to their greatest possibilities. 
Julius II and his predecessors 
would not content themselves to 
retreating behind those venerable 
Vatican walls, their only contact 
with the outside world in the form 
of annual or bi-annual encyclicals. 
True, the image put forth on the 
screen may very well summon 
up a phrase like "The rough-and- 
ready Pope," but is this (or bet- 
ter, was this) wrong? A fighting 
Pope ... a strong man, a force- 
ful man, a HOLY man; Harrison 
portrays all three in one mighty 
achievement — a cinematic trin- 
ity. Somewhat apropos, I should 

All beauty must have at least 
one flaw, and this picture's flaw, 
conversly, comes from beauty — 
Diane Cilento. Perhaps you re- 
member her as the buxom, bawdy 
wench of "Tom Jones." It is a 
shame that she couldn't summon 
up 1 the same fire for this portrayal 
of the Contessa de Medici. The 
Contessa has never been so ab- 
jectively passive, so docile, so 
downright meek. 

Mayhap's one's interest in the 
picture would be only confined to 
the sheer artistry of the camera. 
The balance of color and sweep- 
ing panorama in CINEMASCOPE 
are truly breathtaking. Heston 
tends to be at his best when 
sweating (or more politely, per- 
spiring); Harrison, when walking 
about or blessing the cheering 
throngs, for when he speaks, over- 
tones of Henry Higgins fill the air, 
and I personally waited for him 
to dismiss his cardinals with a 
gay "Cheerio, chaps.' 

In spite of the seriousness of 
the film, the moments of comedy 
in it cannot be contained. There 
is no real agony, and the mo- 
ments of true dramatic impact 
are sadly few and far between 
but if you go, take a CATHOLIC 
• ■ • you'll need him for explana- 
tion of many, many scenes.

West Palm Beach 


Burt, a member of Civil Air 
Patrol six years and the county's 
highest ranking officer, appeared 
before the selection hoard in Jan- 
uary 1968 to qualify as the Flor- 
ida representative. Contestants 
were subjected to rigid tests, oral 
questions, and to selected social 

The 52 representatives were 
flown to Perin Air Force Base, 
one of two in the U.S. where 
fighter pilots are trained A large 
portion of the nine-day session 
was spent in physiological train- 
ing, which included bail-out pro- 
cedures, oxygen systems, control 
panels, and a thorough indoctri- 
nation of the T-33, a made-over 
version of the F-80 Shooting Star, 
used during the Korean Conflict. 

In addition, much time was 
spent in the T-33 simulating ma- 
chines, which enabled cadets to 
get the actual feel of the controls, 
altitude problems, and radar, 
without leaving the ground. 

The simulator contained an al- 
titude chamber in which Burt 
went to a height of 43,000 feet, 
while in actual high altitude 
flight, he reached 41,000 feet. 

"Coming in on a Wing and a 
Prayer," title of a popular WW II 
song, is how Burt felt after bemg 
introduced to barrel rolls, figure 
eights, dives, formation flying, 
and bombing runs, while piloting 
the T-33. 

Later in the program, cadets 
became acquainted with the F-102 
flight simulator, a ground version 
of the aircraft, where they learned 
to fly intercepts on enemy planes. 
Burt was one of two cadets in the 
program successful in intercept- 
ing an adversary aircraft. 

Commenting on the program, 
Burt feels "The Jet Orientation 
Course" a true representation of 
Air Force life, and as a whole 
very beneficial to anyone con- 
sidering the U.S. Air Force as a 
career, even if they're not plan- 
ning on being a pilot." 

Student Government 
Executive Officers 
Receive Honorariums 

The Student Senate passed leg- 
islation Thursday establishing hon- 
orariums for the four executive 
officers of the Student Govern- 
ment Association. 

The legislation, authored by 
Sophomore Publications Senator 
Dave Doucette, calls for the pres- 
ident, vice president, secretary, 
and treasurer to receive honorari- 
ums for the fall and winter terms. 

Honorariums are a form of grat- 
ification given to many student 
leaders on campus. 

SOPHOMORE TOM PARKER records information trom a 
magazine article that he is viewing on one of the microfilm 
readers in the Learning Resource Center. 


Aid To Learning 

What would YOU do if you had 
a million dollars to spend over a 
one-year period? 

State funds provided PBJC with 
a three story Learning Resources 
Center conducive to study for all 
students. Because of the Higher 
Education Act, the federal govern- 
ment will reimburse PBJC with 
40% of the cost. 

Comments like, "It makes you 
feel like you're in a big univer- 
sity," "It's better than the down- 
town library," and phrases using 
every conceivable adjective, from 
"fabulous" to "comfortable," ap- 
pear to be the average student's 
feelings toward the new library. 

The Learning Resources Center, 
completed last month, has an en- 
larged staff of 18 ready to assist 
students at any time. Mr. Wiley 
C. Douglass, director of library 
services, feels that "Half of 
knowledge is knowing where to 
seek it." Thus, the policy of the 
staff is not to do the students' 
work for them, but to provide ma- 
terials so they can do their own 

The Audio -Visual Center, re- 
serve books, listening stations 
geared to music and literature, 
and a conference room for group 
meetings, make up the first floor. 
This conference room, available 
to campus organizations, must be 
scheduled in advance. Thirty 
micro-viewers and biology slides 
are offered for the students' use 
in the AV Center, as well as eight 
new typewriters. 

Those interested in viewing peri- 
odicals dating back several years, 
may do so by using one of the 
new micro-readers. These micro- 
readers enable students to view

The federal government has al- 
ready approved funds for addi- 
tional typewriters, drapes, 60 
swastika-shaped study booths, 240 
chairs, a dictionary stand, an out- 
side book drop, and three elec- 
tric charging machines. These 
machines, to be in use in Janu- 
ary, will no longer necessitate the 
stamping of cards or students 
having to sign for books. 

While federal funds cannot be 
used for decorative purposes, do- 
nations, such as that of seven 
potted plants made by Civinettes, 
could be accepted. 

A major problem facing the 
Language Resources Building at 
present, is the trampling of mud 
on the carpeting. According to 
Mr. Douglass, part of this prob- 
lem is to be remedied with the 
placing of five feet of sod on the 
grounds surrounding the building. 
Wiping of feet before entrance 
would also be conducive to con- 
serving the carpeting, he stated.

cancies by having interested stu- 
dents apply and come before the 
Senate for approval. This method 
was selected because of the apathy 
the freshmen displayed at last 
month's elections. 

The four constitutional amend- 
ments concern the levision of the 
present constitution to allow for 
the reorganizing of the SGA Exec- 
utive Department to include six 
student boards. The amendments 
were authored and sponsored by 
sophomore Senator, Burt Wilkins. 

The amendments were uanani- 
mously approved by the Senate 
after two weeks of readings and 
work in the Constitutional Revi- 
sions Committee. The amendments 
were found to be flawless and 
their acceptance was '"strongly 

| In All Basic Subjects 

urged" by the committee. 

The purpose of the amendments 
is to create an SGA cabinet, con- 
sisting of the chairmen of six self- 
perpetuating student boards. These 
boards deal with the areas of 
campus beautification, communi- 
cations, elections, leadership and 
service, student organizations, and 
spirit and traditions. 

The proposed student boards 
assume many of the trivial mat- 
ters usually handled by the Senate. 
With these boards, the Senate is 
left free to legislate, its true pur- 

The way in which the boards 
are to be filled, and the back- 
ground and purpose of each board 
will be explained thoroughly in 
next week's paper.

food Drive 
On October 13 

Thi Del's first blood drive of 
the year will be held on Thursday, 
October 13, from 8 a.m. until 4 
p.m. in the downstairs audiovisual 

To give blood, donors must 
weigh at least 110 pounds, be in 
good general health, and, if under 
21, must have a permission slip 
signed by their parents. These 
slips may be obtained in Dean 
Glynn's office or from any Thi 
Del member or pledge. 

Not only those who donate, but 
all students, faculty, staff, and 
their immediate families are eligi- 
ble to use the blood. To obtain 
blood, the name of the patient, his 
doctor, and hospital must be given 
to Dean Glynn. 

Anyone receiving blood from the 
college's account pays only $10, 
instead of the normal $35. Even 
though the blood itself is free, the 
$10 is an administrative fee that 
must be charged. 

Thi Del members and pledges 
will assist the technicians from 
the Palm Beach County Blood 
Bank. Participants m the drive 
are given small red paper hearts 
reading "I gave" or "I tried", de- 
pending on their success or failure 
to donate blood. 

The cafeteria is again giving 
cookies and orange juice to all 
who donate.

Student Senate Moves 

The Student Senate moved in the right direction Thursday 
when they decided to fill the five vacant freshmen Senate 
seats by a general election. 

In September's regular Senatorial election only seven 
freshmen qualified for twelve seats. At press time twenty 
freshmen had applied for the five vacant seats, assuring the 
voters a wide choice of candidates, which is something they 
were not afforded in the previous election. 

To be effective the Senators must campaign and work for 
election, not simply walk into office. A Senator who has the 
support of the students will work for the benefit of the stu- 
dents, not his own personal gain. 

The candidates have turned out in sufficient numbers. 
Now the freshmen voters must go to the polls and elect Sena- 
tors who will truly represent all freshmen. 

Where Are The Vests? 

Last January the Student Senate allocated funds for the 
purchase of fifty gold-colored vests to be used for identifica- 
tion purposes at PBJC sponsored events. 

Ten months later the vests have been used only twice: 
on student guides at the Open House and High School Visita- 
tion Activities last spring. Are these vests worth the money if 
they are used only two or three times a year? 

Gold vests, instead of pocket-sized name tags, on the 

tudent helpers at registration would have greatly assisted the 

gistering students. If the club members collecting for the 

cent Dollars for Scholars Drive had been identified with 

ese vests the collection might have been more successful. 

These fifty vests were obtained with Student Activity Fees, 
hey should be used more than twice in ten months if the 
.tudents are to gain full benefit from them. 

The Galleon Grows 

The yearbook staff announced this fall that die 1967 
Galleon would be larger than last year's book. One of the 
announced plans to expand the book was a larger class picture 

After Friday's make up pictures nearly one thousand 
student pictures had been taken, double last year's number. 

If the other methods of expanding the Galleon work as 
well as this one apparently has, 1967 yearbook will be 
improvement over last year's edition. \

^Doctor Zhivago' lacks Intensity; 
Main Fault Lies In The Casting 

Wednesday, October 5, 1966 Pagg_3_ 

Student Senate Prexy 
Appoints Committees 

by Rob Greene 

There is something missing from 
David Lean's film version of 
"Doctor Zhivago," and up until 
now I couldn't quite put my finger 
on it; but given a little thought, 
it boils down to the basic factor 
of intensity. Zhivago is undoubt- 
edly empty. Now if you've seen 
the picture, you are probably 
thinking that I'm some kind of 
nut (as I have heard rumblings 
on campus to this effect), how- 
ever, I do not mean "Zhivago" as 
a whole, but Zhivago as a doctor 
and poet 

The fault here lies in the cast- 
ing. Omar Sharif may make a 
fine desert sheik, but a poet and 
humanitarian doctor in turn-of- 
the-century Russia he proves him- 
self to be somewhat shallow. His 
performance is further weakened 
by the assumption that he has no 
control whatsoever over his facial 
muscles. Not once did I see him 
in any way change his expression. 
True, he smiles brightly, but he 
draws a blank on all other counts. 
He could be watching a group of 
peasants being overrun by the 
Czar's dragoons or in the throes 
of a passionate scene with Julie 
Christie or performing a delicate 
operation on a wounded soldier, 
he never once showed any strain 
or other expression. He never 
changed. Sharif's whole problem 
is that as Zhivago, he is too ex- 

Geraldine Chaplin, if not as bad 
as Sharif, is worse. As Zhivago's 
wife, she is too sweet, too sugary, 
too ingenue. Oh, true, there are 
times when she shows true 
promise, but they are so few and 
so Fleeting that they go by un- 
noticed by most and unimportant 
to all. Unimportant because she 
is Charley Chaplin's pride and 
joy and she's making it big with 
her first picture and aren't we 
proud. The thought occurred to 
me as I watched her, that maybe 
she has freckles or some other 
skin disorder, for whenever she 
was on camera she looked like 

she either had too much make-up 
on, or was being filmed in Doris 
Day soft-focus. 

Just so I don't sound like some 
sort of misfit (as I've heard rum- 
blings) I will come right out and 
say that "Zhivago" does indeed 
have many redeeming features, 
namely Christie, Steiger, and 

Among these top-ranking assets, 
and definitely in the lead, is Julie 
Christie. If you missed "Darling", 
you've missed Christie at her fin- 
est, for try as she may, she will 
never top that role. As Lara she 
is uncommonly warm, convincing 
and consistent in her character. 
It is she who saves those scenes 
between her and Sharif. It is Julie 
Christie who lights the screen— she 
makes the picture. 

Rod Steiger, if you've never 
seen him in a picture before, (esp 
"The Pawnbroker") could read 
Mother Goose and make it sound 
menacing. He can personify evil 
in such a way that he IS evil. An 
actor of this calibre is needed for 
the title role; someone who fairly 
throbs with the intensity and ex- 
citement of the character in Pas- 
ternak's novel. The scenes be- 
tween he and Miss Christie are 
kinetic, they are electric, they 
MOVE, there is ACTING taking 
place— and there aren't too many 

chances to see these two 

Tom Courtenay, m the rdf 
Pascha, the rebellious young 
er, is convincing enough for 
movie's purposes. Pascha &" 
carnate good. He is strong <&\ 
and pure of heart and nii 
right and so on and so forth 
is so GOOD (as opposed 
Steiger's evil), he just may r< 
you ill. 

The entire production, desljr 
by John Box, is without a do| 
the most beautiful and P". 
worthy piece of work I have e| 
seen recorded on film. His uv 
blues and greys and silvers | 
the depicting of the cold Rutf t 
winters is very effective. 

Perhaps I was most relit* 
to find that even with the ail 
opening (completely free of 
original book), and the equ 
as dull ending (a happy endiri 
a Russian novel?) the picture' 
not manage to reduce itself t 
catalog of the revolution, a t 
that Lean or any other dim 
could have fallen into. In k 
the entire three-and-three-qmr 
hours spent in the theatre » 
thoroughly enjoyable. 

Suffice it to say that with a I 
changes made (in the person. 1 , 
Sharif and Miss Chaplin) thejj 
ture would be as close to pert j 
as any picture I have seen.

Four Constitutional Amen 

students are eligible to vote. 
Freshmen are electing five sena- 
tors at the same time. 

The amendments, concerning 
the revision of the present consti- 
tution to allow for the reorganiz- 
ing of the SGA Executive Depart- 
ment to include six student boards, 
were authored and sponsored by 
sophomore Senator, Burt Wilkins. 

The purpose of the amendments 
is to create an SGA cabinet con- 
sisting of the chairmen of six self- 

perpetuating student boards deal- 
ing with the areas of campus 
beautification, communications, 
elections, leadership and service, 
student organizations, and spirit 
and traditions. 

The four amendments involve 
the formalities of establishing the 
boards and explaining their duties. 
To quote the amendments word 
for word would take too much 
room here so a brief outline of 
each board follows.

morrow, as the voting machines 
usually borrowed from the county 
are being used in the upcoming 
municipal elections. 

The five vacancies were caused 
by too few candidates qualifying 
for the regular senatorial elections 
in September. Twenty freshmen 
originally applied for the five va- 
cant seats, but two withdrew for 
undisclosed reasons. 

At the first meeting of the year, 
the Senate decided to fill the va- 
cancies by having interested stu- 
dents apply and come before the 
Senate for approval. 

This method was selected at the 

time because of the apathy dis- 
played by the freshmen in last 
month's election. When twenty 
freshmen qualified for the five 
seats, it was decided to hold a 
general election. 

The eighteen candidates for the 
five vacant seats are Marlenc 
Acquaotta, Rosemary Adamson, 
Nancy Barnette, Robert Burk- 
hardt, Lana Davis, Pat Davis, 
Karen Dupere, Rebecca Farmer, 
Sharon Flodder, Michael Galla- 
way, Barbara Haun, Joanne Lo-

Important Elections 

Tomorrow you will go to the polls in what may be one 
of the most important elections on this campus since the elec- 
tion that brought PBJC intercollegiate sports. 

Not the five freshmen Senate seats, but the four consti- 
tutional amendments are the most important part of the elec- 
tion. The approval of these amendments means a rebirth for 
the Student Government Association, a new life of growth 
and advancement; rejection will mean defeat, a step without 

The approval of these four conditional amendments' will 
take your SGA out of the "glorified high school student coun- 
cil" category and place it on a level comparable ■ with other 
colleges and universities. 

The six student boards established by these amendments 
will enlarge the Executive Department to a level where . it 
can function properly. The Senate can utilize its time legis- 
lating, its true purpose, while the student boards assume many 
of the unnecessary matters the Senate was forced to do earlier. 

The choice is yours tomorrow; vote yes and your SGA 
progresses; vote no and your SGA begins a slow, but sure, 

Where's The Action? 

In the Senate campaign speeches last September several 
of the victorious sophomore candidates mentioned a desire for 
big name entertainment in their speeches. 

Not one word concerning big name entertainment has 
been said at a Senate meeting thus far this year. A year ago 
at this time a committee was working on entertainment for 
the year; their work resulted in performances by the Mitchell 
Trio and the Brothers Four. 

If action isn't taken soon PBJC will miss out on entertain- 
ment by groups such as those mentioned above. 

ewspaper Week 

Many of the problems newspapers have with the public 
stem from a lack of understanding of the role, the responsi- 
bilities and the importance of a free press in a free society. 
Citizens would allow the press to be free only if it does not 
talk about their own faults and shortcomings. "Report the 
skeletons in the other fellow's closet," they say. That makes 
good reading. The record should be set straight at least once 
a year-and National Newspaper Week is a good time to do it. 
Some publishers don't like to keep harping on this subject, 
but if you don t tell them, who will?

Dear Sir: 

Again I disagree with your ap- 
proach to something you do not 
and could not understand. I am 
referring, of course, to your pan- 
ning of the David Lean-Carlo 
Ponti production of "Dr. Zhi- 

The first point of the movie you 
shredded, Mr. Greene, was the 
lack of Zhivago's facial expres- 
sions. Perhaps you do not realize 
or believe in the philosophy of 
Stoicism, but one of the hardest 
things for a person to do is con- 
trol his emotions. Zhivago felt 
things very deeply. If you have 
read the novel, you would have 
realized this. The intensity of his 
eyes is the only real key to what 
the poet is thinking and feeling. 
Zhivago experienced emotion inside, 
but just because he didn't burst 
into tears when he saw the Mos- 
cow peasants sliced up or pounce 
upon Julie Christie whenever she 
glanced his way, there is no rea- 
son to condemn him to the Re- 
tarded Actors' Home. If you have 
read the LARA POEMS, you will 
see exactly what I am trying to 

I agree with you about Julie 
Christie's importancy in Dr, Zhi- 
vago's story, but please, please 
don't pick on Geraldine Chaplan. 
She was exactly the person she 
was supposed to be. Ask Paster- 

In reference to Pasha and Vic- 
tor, I think both of them were both 
heroes and villians. The only bad, 
per se, was the concept that man 
cannot always be physically free. 
But, Zhivago and, perhaps, the 
forced laborer on the train to the 
Urals were the only free men in 
Russia. Sir Richard Lovelace said 
that to be liberated in one's soul 
overbalances all outside obstacles. 

Besides, who would you recom- 
mend for the parts of Zhivago 
and Tonya? Troy Donahue and 
Tuesday Weld? It figures. 

Sincerely but sadly, 
Angeline Albertson 

Dear sir: 

In your September 28 issue, Mr. 
Smith, while inquiring of and 
commenting on the policy of- the 
Beachcomber, brought out a vari- 
ety of good points. 

Mr. Smith's letter was strong 



in expressing his views, but your 
note was rude and in bad taste. 
Certainly you can be courteous 
without giving up your "inde- 
pendence," or should I say your 
"freedom of the press." 

I am not an instructor, but a 
student, so will you give me the 
reasons for your policy. But, of 
course, you do not know me, so 
there is no reason for you to be 
courteous to me either. 

Sincerely yours, 
Ronald D. Boyd 

(Editor's note: The name of the 
author of a letter to the Editor 
will be omitted at my discretion 
only. This is the policy employed 
by the majority of collegiate and 
metropolitan newspapers. Many 
club officers may want to voice 
an opinion but cannot because of 
their association with the organi- 
zation. The only logical way for 
them to voice their opinion is as 
an unidentified author (e.g.— 
president-. of Student Government).

PRlVlLEee— HIS OLE /V\AN CWW£ A &&V&&." 

mmmmm um 

This week over iuu uata proc- 
essing students here start using 
their new quarters, the first on 
campus designed specifically for 
data processing. 

The two-story, 8,000 square-foot 
building seems far larger and 
more imposing than the $170,870 
construction cost would indicate. 
This is due partly to the fact that 
the building joins the southeast 
side of the new $2,000,000 Library 
Learning Resources Center, and 
appears to be a continuation of 
that structure. 

Exterior walkways on all four 
sides, 12 feet wide, increase the 
apparent dimensions of the build- 
ing from 52 by 82 feet to 75 by 104. 

Previous quarters for the new 
program now in its third year of 
full operation, and by far the 
fastest growing program on cam- 
pus, were makeshift expansions of 
rooms formerly used for the col- 
lege's own data processing needs. 

The new building will serve two 
functions— that of instruction, and 
of providing the college with 
data processing facilities for its 
own use. 

"From the beginning of our data 
processing instruction here, it has 
been evident that there is a strong 
community need," says Dr. Harold 
C. Manor, president. 

"Accordingly, we began plan- 
ning for this building shortly after 
institution of the program. We 
will now be able to handle con- 
siderable expansion in the field." 

The ground floor of the new 
Data Processing Building will 
house computer and data process- 
ing work areas, and student lab- 
" oratory areas. Special flooring. 
covers a much -wider area than is 
occupied by the equipment now 
owned by the college, to allow for 
future expansion. i 

The second floor contains three 
large classrooms with special elec- 
trical facilities, and faculty of- 
fices. ' 

Dale Washburn, data processing 
coordinator, said the building will 
give the college the possibility of 
developing a "large, modern com- 
puter laboratory." 

"This will be extremely useful 
for the work of the college," 
Washburn said, "but even more 
important in allowing greater ef- 
ficiency and some room for ex- 
pansion in our instructional pro- 

"It is difficult for the average 
person to visualize the importance 
of the computer in the future life 
of our society," Washburn says. 

"We hope to be able to con 
timie to meet that demand."

Kirk Wins 
In Straw Vote 

In the Political Union-sponsor- 
ed straw gubernatorial election 
held at Thursday's SGA elec- 
tions, the Republican candidate, 
Claude Kirk, defeated Robert 
King High, his Democratic coun- 
terpart, by a vote of 140 to 127. 

There was one write-in vote for 
former Governor Haydon Burns, 
who lost to High in last May's 
Democratic primaries. 

Many so-called "political ex- 
perts" have predicted that Kirk 
must carry Palm Beach County 
by a large margin, if he is to 
win his race for the governor- 
ship. These "political experts" 
must now wonder if the county 
electorate will vote the same way 
that our students did.

Mr. William Murfin, chairman 
of the Republican State Execu-

offer the youth of Florida. His 
talk was followed by a question

The four constitutional amend-

amendments differ as many stu-

boards are being 'finalized, and

Termed 'Successful' 

One hundred and seven pints 
of blood, and Thi Del closed shop 
on its most successful blood 
drive, October 13. 

Held from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. 
Thursday, the drive now boasts 
over 1,100 pints of blood since 
its inception twelve years ago. 

The entire student body, staff, 
faculty, and immediate families 
are eligible to use the blood con- 
tributed by donors, who had to 
weigh at least 110 pounds and be 
in good general health To obtain 
blood, the name of the patient, 
his doctor, and hospital, must 
be submitted to Dean Glynn. 

Instead of the usual $35, a $10 

administrative fee is charged to 
anyone receiving blood from the 
college's account.

Rankings Needed? 

A recent Associated Press wire story related Haverford 
College, in Haverford, Pennsylvania, dropping its class rank- 

Dr. Hugh Borton, Haverford President, said die change 
long has been considered, but was reviewed and approved 
after selective service made the rankings part of the draft 

"Actually," said Borton, "there has been considerable dis- 
cussion among the faculty for some time whether to give up 
numerical grades for letters, or even just giving passing or 
failing grades." 

The faculty at Haverford thought that class ranking put 
many students under extra pressure, as it forced many to en- 
roll in easy courses to obtain high averages. 

Last spring Amherst College and the University of 
Rochester announced that they were offering many courses 
where only a passing or failing grade is given. They ar- 
gued that students will not coast through the classes, but 
force professors to give interesting lectures to keep class 
attendance up. 

Tlie Beachcomber's opinion of the matter is expressed 
in die words of Haverford President Borton, "We felt that if 
a student shopped around for easy courses, feeling that his 
ranking would determine whether he was drafted, the rank- 
ings didn't make any sense, and were not academically 

A Good Election, But 

Thursday's general election was one of the best conduc- 
ted by the Student Government Association in the last year 
and a half. 

IBM lists of full-time freshmen and sophomores were on 
hand, and a voter had to display his ID card and sign the list 
next to his name before he was allowed to vote. 

Only full-time students were eligible to vote Thursday and 
if a student's name wasn't on the list, he couldn't cast his bal- 
lot. But someone working at the polls didn't know this and 
permitted three students to add their names to a list and vote. 

One of the student boards established by the amendments 
that were approved Thursday is an Elections Board. Perhaps 
this board can help the Senate formulate a strong election 
code; and then an SGA election may be conducted flawlessly.

The Wrong Box- 
Prime British Humor 


Why is it that the British find 
it so easy to convulse the major- 
ity of American audiences without 
the slightest effort? Remember 
"Carry On Nurse," "The Mouse 
That Roared" and "Tom Jones"? 
All three were imports from the 
Isles, and all three grossed 
millions here. I only ask how they 
do it, time after time. In fact, 
this was the thought uppermost 
in my mind as I sat through the 
premier showing of Britannia's 
latest to hit American screens, 
"The Wrong Box." 

Attempting to answer this 
question (for my own curiosity), 
I managed to organize my 
thoughts into three main cate- 
gories, all three of which help 
to place this picture in the plus 

One: The British wit is un- 
commonly dry, and to American 
audiences this is therefore a re- 
freshing change from the peren- 
nial Doris Day or Jerry Lewis 
chucklers. The humor comes 
fast, and if you don't catch it, 
you are lost because there is no 
waiting for a double-take in- 
volved, the lines keep coming. 

Two: Complete abandon is in- 
volved. This includes the aban- 
don of sociological mores, Emily 
Post mannerisms and even so far 
as the sacred rites of Christian 
burial. This too is somewhat re- 
freshing to see the stiff and 
starched British let their hair 
down and laugh. 

Three: Peter Sellers. A sepa- 
rate entity, talent personified, he 
adds innumerably to the picture 
even though he only occupies 
approximately twenty minutes of 
the film's time. 

Michael Caine, of "The Ipcres 
File," Sir Ralph Richardson (late 
of "Doctor Zhivago") and John 
Mills (Hayley's father) are all 
excellent; and not to sound trite, 
the butler did it, in the sense 
that Wilfrid Lawson in the role 
of Peacock, nearly steals the pic- 
ture right out from under the 

"The Wrong Box" may remind 
you, in many a scene of "Tom 

j ones' or a tew seasons back. 
Slow motion camera work, a 
battle in the graveyard, and in- 
cessant off-screen seduction are 
only a small part of the many 
effects used to heighten the al- 
ready existant hilarity. 

A good picture, well worth your 
time, and seriously, should not 
be missed. 

For those of you interested in 
soaking up a little culture, (whaz- 
zat, whazzat??) starting tonight 
at the Florida Theatre in Down- 
town West Palm, is the color 
film of Tchaikovsky's "The 
Sleeping Beauty." It stars the 
Leningrad Kirov Ballet, and hav- 
ing seen it long ago and far 
away, I believe I can truthfully 
say that even if you are not an 
admirer of the classics, this will 
be found enjoyable, colorful and 
melodic. Student rates are being 
made available, something you 
don't hear too much of, making 
it even more worthwhile.

From The 
Sports Mike 

With Mike Boggy 

Many controversial topics of discussion come from the 
world of sports. From the required physical education courses 
to the after four intramural fun to intercollegiate sports your 
questions, candid comments, compliments and complaints will 
be "aired" via the "Sports Mike." 

How many students know what a Pacer is? Or what a 
Pacer looks like? 

Should P.B.J.C. offer swimming in intramural activities? 
Why hasn't it been offered yet? Does P.B.J.C. have access to 
such facilities? Would enough students participate if it was 

Should P.B.J.C. lower the Physical Education Require- 
ment for graduation from 4 to 2 hours like another southern 
Florida junior college has? 

If P.B.J.C. funds can provide bows and arrows for archery 
students and badminton rackets for badminton students, how 
come it won't provide tennis rackets for tennis students? 

Several other schools in Florida are putting on half time 
shows at basketball games. Would this be desirable at P.B.J.C? 

How do coaches and students feel about athletes playing 
intercollegiate sports with long hair? 

By now you've probably thought of a few questions your- 
self. Or maybe you think you have some answers. Great! Be 
you a student or faculty member, I'd like to hear them. Leave 
me a note or see me personally in the Beachcomber in the SAC

Claude Kirk desires to develop 
more research programs in the 
state colleges by allocation re- 
search grants to qualified insti- 
tutions. This can be done by rais- 
ing our per capita spending on 
higher educational facilities, ac- 
cording to Kirk. 

The Republican candidate ad- 
vocates a change in the Board 
of Education and Board of Re- 
gents system. He feels that the 
Board of Regents should submit 
the budget to the Budget Com- 
mission, and upon approval, it 
should be under the sole direction 
of the Board of Regents. 

Since the state now possesses 
a 65,000-student overflow, Kirk 
believes that the state needs to 
raise teacher salaries, especially 
in the junior colleges, and devel- 
op under the direction of the 
Board of Regents, a system of 
sabbatical leaves and other ben- 

Kirk also advocates adopting 
a new formula for financing the 
operation of junior colleges. In 
the past ten years junior college 
enrollment has gone from 1,860

1965 Miss Galleon 

Contestants must be carrying 
12 hours with a 2.0 average at the 
six weeks, and may be freshmen 
or sophomores. 

Any girl who has won the Miss 
Galleon, Miss Freshman, Miss 
Sophomore titles or has otherwise 
been recognized by the Galleon 
Beauty Court is not eligible. 

Applications must be in the 
Galleon office no later than 3:30 
Friday, October 28. They are to 
be accompanied by a photograph 
of the contestant and a descrip- 
tion of her talent performance, 
three to ten minutes long. 

Ten semi-finalists will be chosen 
by a student judging panel. The 

final judging to choose the 1966 
Miss Galleon is to be done by a 
ficultv pinel 

to 60,000, and the state is contrib- 
uting about 80 per cent of the 
cost for these institutions; this 
is one of the contributing causes 
for our property taxes reaching 
their maximum limits. 

Kirk favors the expanding of 
the Governor's Conference on 
Education and Scholarship Foun- 
dation. He hopes to increase funds 
for these projects through the 
Governor's Inauguration Ball. 

Children must have pre-schoo! 
training in order to adjust and 
gain full benefit from their formal 
education; therefore, Kirk advo- 
cates setting up a state kinder- 
garten system before the Fed- 
eral Education Board steps in. 

Crime cannot exist without 
protection and aid. These prob- 
lems should not be solved by 
more federal encroachment ac- 
cording to Kirk, 

The Sheriff's Bureau is under- 
paid and understaffed. Kirk sug- 
gests that the Sheriff's Bureaus be 
reconstituted and report to the 
Governor and his cabinet. Kirk 
would also like to see the powers 
of investigation extended, to any 
county if there is any suspicion 
of collaboration between crime 
rings in different counties. 

Kirk feels that Bingo, as enter- 
tainment for worthwhile fund- 
raising causes should be permit- 
ted. Operators of such functions 
should be licensed. 

Mr. Kirk's platform on taxa- 
tion is: no increase or new taxa- 
tion of any kind. This, he feels, 
can be accomplished through the 
reorganization of the fiscal poli- 
cies of the departments of the 
state government to eliminate 
overlapping and needless dupli- 
cation of costs.

For the first time since the de- 
mise of the "Defenders," televi- 
sion came of age on Wednesday, 
October 19, in a highly out- 
spoken drama entitled "The 
Confession" on ABC Stage '67. 
Written for television by David 
Karp, the teleplay depicts the 
basic conflicts between truth and 
fantasy and its psychological and 
physiological aspects. 

Director Alex Segal has knit- 
ted together a taut story of the 
conflict between the accused and 
accuser, right and wrong, love 
and hate. 

The mam story line revolved 
around the suicide pact agreed 

upon by Carl Boyer and his 
fiance, Bonnie. Discovering that 
she is pregnant, and after a fu- 
tile attempt at an illegal abor- 
tion, they decide to die, together. 
When the fumes of the gas are 
detected, the room is broken into 
only to find Carl wedged against 
the door still alive, and Bonnie 
dead. From this point, the story 
picks up momentum as the dedi- 
cated Lt. Hammond begins his 
campaign to have the boy sign 
a confesion stating that he killed 

From this opening scene, then, 
the program becomes a treatise

By Gayle McElroy 
A lost tribe. A graveyard site. 
Priceless relics. Grave robbers. 
Endless bargaining. A story with- 
out an end. 

The only clue to the disappear- 
ance of the Colima Indians, liv- 
ing from 600-900 A. D. in Colima, 
Mexico, lies in their remaining 
pottery and artwork, a part of 
which is on display in the Admin- 
istration and Humanities Build- 

In the western Mexican district 
of Colima, lies a small town of 
that name, settled on the remains 
of an ancient graveyard and tem- 

able, magazine articles can be 
duplicated and kept for your own 
use. Paradise Lost CAN BE taken

pie. The only occupation known 
to the present population of Colima 
is the digging and selling of the 
relics of the past. 

A large number of the findings, 
most of which are in perfect con 
dition because of the light vol- 
canic ash in which they're buried, 
are clay pot-bellied dogs for which 
Colima is becoming well known. 
These replicas, plus four living 
dogs, are the only remains of this 
hairless breed which was raised 
and fattened for consumption by 
forced feeding. 

Warrior-shaped whistles, clay 
dolls, small expertly-shaped birds, 
ax heads and weapons, stone 
beads and elaborate redware pots 
enclosed by waterlily petals have 
also been unearthed and subjected 
to barter. 

A possible clue to the degenera- 
tion of the Colima Indians lies in 
the fact that a portion of the 
tribe was plagued with a spinal 
disease causing some to become 
hunchback. Because of their ab- 
normality, these men were hon- 
ored with priority in the tribe 

Whether this plague, famine, 
enemy tribes or some other logi- 
cal reason wiped out the Colima 
Indians has not been unburied. 
But PBJC is fortunate in that part 
of the tribe's culture has been 
discovered, and is now on display 
for students to enjoy.

pitcher for the Atlanta Braves and

Curtain Opens Tomorrow Nigh 
On Play The Adding Machine' 

by Raul Ramirez 
Feature Editor 

Opening perfotmance of "The 
Adding Machine," the College 
Players' first dramatical produc- 
tion of the year, is tomorrow night 
at 8:14 in the Auditorium. 

Directed by Frank Leahy, Dee 
Rutherford, Pat Brilton, and 
Martha Weldon, "The Adding 
Machine" has been described by 
critics as one of the finest ex- 
amples of expressionistic thea- 
tre. The expressionistic school, 
originated in Germany in the 
Post WWI years, i.s concerned 
with the difference between in- 
terpreting a character from the 
objective and the subjective point 

of view. That is, the expression- 
istic playnght tries to portray 
not only what goes on physically 
on stage, but also what thoughts 
go through the characters' minds 

"The Adding Machine" features 
one 'of the largest casts ever as- 
sembled at PBJC, nineteen men 
and twenty women. 

Mr, Zero, the lead character, is 
portrayed by Burt Merriam, win- 
ner of last year's Phi Rho Pi 
Best Supporting Actor award. An 
office clerk adding figures for 25 
years, Mr. Zero kills his boss 
when he learns he is to be re- 
placed by an adding machine. 
Tried and executed for his crime, 
Zero, or rather, his soul, reaches

In last week's issue of the 
Beachcomber part of the story 
about the mock gubernatorial 
election was omitted at the print- 
er's, deleting the section concern- 
ing Democratic candidate, Robert 
King High's platform. 

This incident was simply a 
printer's mistake, and was not a 
political move by the printer or 
the Beachcomber. The entire 
story was set in type, but repro- 
duction proofs were run only on 
half of the story; it was mere 
coincidence that High's platform 
Was deleted. 

The following is the material 
about Robert King High's plat- 
form that was left out last week.

by Suzy Glave 
News Editor 

High feels that the crucial de- 
***«nd for higher education is far 
outstripping the state's facilities. 
He believes that some of the high 
cost of facilities could be cut by 
competitive bidding. Mr. High 
a Iso advocates the establishment 
of a learning institute to study, 
evaluate, improve and when 
**ecessary, develop new teaching 
***W learning techniques. 

With funds from the National 
^teadstart Program, Mr. High 
'VWarits to institute a state kinder- 
garten system. 

High believes the solutions to 

our teacher shortage problems 
can be remedied by offering 
teachers scholarships for study in. 
educational courses through the 
use of auxiliary personnel; estab- 
lishing standards of certification 
other than the National Teacher's 
Examination; providing funds to 
implement a teacher welfare pro- 
gram, establishment of profes- 
sional negotiation procedures for 
school boards and local asocia- 
tions to discuss matters of mutual 
concern; prohibit proliferation of 
required curricula and establish 
minimum salaries for teachers 
by rank and seniority. 

He seeks to establish a re- 
source center with the junior 
college system to study the new- 
est industrial equipment and 
techniques. Mr. High plans to at- 
tach the immediate junior col- 
lege problem and projection of 
future requirements by increasing 
faculty salaries through the revi- 
sion of the financing of junior 
college operations by seeking fed- 
eral matching funds and asking 
the legislature for "catch up" 
funds not approved in the last 
legislature session. . 

High's platform on taxation in- 
cludes paying taxes quarterly in- 
stead of annually; taxing the 
lumber, aggregate, railroad, phos- 
phate and mineral industries. He 
also plans to tax the insurance 
companies. However, he is 
against any new real estate tax- 

es. He advocates repeal of ex- 
emptions on sales tax, except for 
groceries, medicines, charitable 
and religious transactions. 

Alt papers collected aic do- 
nated to the Habilitation Center 
of Palm Beach County for use 
as packing and shipping material. 

Collection points will be set up 
throughout the city and anyone 
wishing to donate papers may 
have them picked up by calling 
one of the numbers listed below.

try site unbounded by the walls

Phillip Moeller, in his foreword 
to "The Adding Machine" won- 
ders, "How many sex-starved 
Zeros are there who pilfer their 
poor gratification by peeping 
across the tenement airshafts, 
how many terrible parties are 
there such as Mr. Rice shows us 
which are going on night after 
night in which people such as 
Mr. One and Mrs. Two and others 
like them are gathered 'to give 
the air' to such baleful profundi- 
ties. In short, how many souls 
are there who here, or hereafter, 
will be able to live up to a para- 
dise — if there is one either here 
or hereafter — where everything 
wilt be of a bliss, of a sort, and 
that such souls can profit in and 

From the technical standpoint, 
"The Adding Machine" offers 
endless opportunities for the use 
of imagination and originality. 
Mr. Watson B. Duncan, III, chair- 
man of the Communications De- 
partment, commented, "I think 
'The Adding Machine' will be 
one of the most interesting plays 
ever presented here from the 
standpoint of technical aspects 
and the gimmicks of the staging." 

Tickets can be obtained from 
all Phi Rho Pi and cast members 
and at the box office, open from 

9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and from 7 to 

10 p.m. every night. Admission is

general public.

Publications On Move 

The results of a recent survey, conducted by the Re- 
f.ivh Committee of the National Council of College Publi- 
t\iti> ms Advisers, revealed some interesting facts concerning 
flic status of the college press now, compared with five 
years ago. 

Questionnaires were sent out to 253 colleges and uni- 
versities which have NCCPA members on their faculties. 
S'.':venrj--five per cent of the newspaper questionnaires and 
W per cent of the yearbook questionnaires were returned; a 
r-.-,p..iuse rarely achieved in questionnaire studies. 

The overall pattern is one of greater freedom, higher 
b'id^cls. more advising time, better staffs, and greater accept- 
;.«-iw by both students and faculty at NCCPA-member schools. 
All .schools did not report all of these gains, but 96 per cent 
<ii the newspaper advisers and 94 per cent of the yearbook 
advisers reported gains in at least one of these areas. 

Eighty-seven per cent of newspaper advisers reported 
rh.,l their budgets are greater than they were five years ago. 
Tii. average gain is 40 per cent, a substantial increase, but 
£.'■ in mi the increase needed to keep pace with the ever- 
i til.'rging enrollments. 

Newspaper advisers also feel that campus newspapers 
an- Ji.Hter accepted by students than five years ago, and that 
"dh are better qualified than before. 

Yearbooks advanced in the same categories, but not as 
•easingly as newspapers. 

College publications is a growing field of responsible serv- 
ro students and schools. Support them; they are the life- 
■»od of America's universities and colleges. 

5,000 Work Hours 

■Vnen "The Adding Machine" opens tomorrow night the 
^■■■>t yf approximately 5,000 man hours of work will be put 
iui.sre the audience. 

The plays presented by our drama department receive 
n > support from Student Government Association funds and 
'■fpc-nd upon box office receipts for monetary success. 

The drama department here is one of the best in the 
-tu». and requires student support to be successful.

There seems to come a time in 
every critic's life when he (out 
of sheer necessity) must compose 
a list of the year's ten best

found myself in a tighter squeeze, 
and to the contrary, a list of the 
year's ten worst. 

Walking away with this year's 
top honors is the recent release 
"Color Me Blood Red." I person-

insult to my intelligence, and was 
highly offended at the high de-

Dr. Joyce Brothers Assembly 
Reveals Girls' Small Secrets? 

by Gert Willoughby 

Girls, do you feel that all your 
little secrets are out? Don't give 
up. Dr. Joyce Brothers may have 
tried to down le femme, but per- 
sonally, I think that she might 
have had just the opposite effect. 

After all, we have always 
known that the male must be 
coddled, petted, agreed with, 
patronized, complimented, prais- 
ed and last, but not least, adored. 
His little idiosyncrasies must be 
overlooked. His moods must be 
dealt with, with understanding, 
and by all means, with caution. 

This master of all, can be 
jealous, but we must not be. He 
can spend money on anything 
that suits his fancy, but we must 
answer to the two-dollar check we 
forgot to enter in the checkbook. 
He can solve all household fix-it 
problems by just telling us how 
to do it. If things don't work out, 
remember, that we did not do 
exactly what he said. 

Nevertheless, these creatures of 
brawn and brain may be the bane 
of our existence, but we can't do 

without them. We chase tnem, call 
them, and make demands of 
them. We blame them for the 
mess the world is in, and yell to 
high heaven because they won't 
straighten it out. 

Now with all this knowledge at 
our fingertips, do you think that 
Dr. Brothers was worth hundreds 
of dollars? I don't. 

Really, I attended the lecture to 
find out how "to open my mind." 
It was opened all right, but not in 
a way that would help me with 
sociology, journalism, speech, or 
English. I have read the same 
thing in magazines that Dr. 
Brothers humorously read from a 
stack of typewritten papers . . 

The quotes from only one 
source of research amazed me. 
Surely there were alternates. Not 
being a student of psychology, 
maybe the lecture was not trite. 
But I'll bet that there are many 
fine teachers right here at PBJC 
that could have done a lot bet- 
ter. Then, too, we could have 
boosted our own' economy and 
helpsd kick the war on poverty.

teen magnificent," he added. "As 
a result, we benefit, they benefit, 
■Mid hundreds of selected indigent 
dental patients will receive care 
they could not have obtained in 
any other way." 

Seventy-two dentists from Palm 
Beach and surrounding counties 

are currently involved in the re- 
search program started, accord- 
ing to Dr. Theodore B Engel, 
chairman of the Dental Health 
Services Department. 

The dentists have formed a 
corporation, the Palm Beach 
County Dental Research Clinic of 
Palm Beach Junior College, Inc., 
which will plan and carry out the 
research program in the clinic 
provided by the college. 

Research groups in the various 
specialties of dentistry, with ten 
or fifteen doctors in each group, 
are being formed for study of 
the latest advances in dental tech- 

"The doctors will be in com- 
plete charge of their own pro- 
gram," Dr. Manor said, "and will 
bring in experts in new tech- 
niques, as they are needed, from 
other parts of the country."

Palm Beach Jr. College will not

Denate Tournament at Mercer

' There are several reasons why 
wc have to drop out of the Dixie

primarily, Vic just don't have the

feuir.g to hurt our debaters in in-

Something Strange? 

Something strange has happened at PBJC. The usual 
student apathy concerning everything is slowly disappearing 
from the campus. 

Several events in the la?t few weeks indicate that the 
student is doing something strange— participating. 

A large crowd attended a Thi Del-sponsored dance two 
weeks ago. It wasn't a traditional dance, and it didn't feature 
a big name group, but students gave up their favorite local 
high school football game to come to the dance. A similar 
affair held nearly a year ago failed to draw 100 students. 

The first two Senate bi-weekly polls procured over 1500 
answers. The largest response to a Senate poll last year failed 
to reach 500. 

The Miss Galleon contest was not held last year because 
of a lack of interest among organizations. This year organiza- 
tions were inteiested enough to sponsor 17 candidates in the 
yearbook-conducted event. 

Apathy— a catch-all word used to excuse poor student 
interest in an activity— is on the way out. 

Work Needed Here 

The work of the Constitutional Revisions Committee of 
the Senate thus far this year has been to approve the amend- 
nents establishing the Student Boards. 

This committee is appointed to approve amendments intro- 
duced by other Senators as well as to investigate the present 
constitution and change it where necessary. 

There are two aieas of the constitution that this committee 
should immediately lectify. 

Article IV deals with the formation, duties, and responsi- 
bilities of the SGA judicial department. This department has 
been nonexistent for the last several years. If the Senate wants 
a judiciary they should suggest to the Executive Department 
that applications be accepted for the four student positions; 
otheiwise, amend the constitution deleting the judicial depart- 
ment from the Student Government Association. 

Section 5 of article VI prohibits the four SGA executive 
officers from running for office in the fieshman or sophomore 
classes. Class officers have not been elected for years because 
of the trimester system. This part of the aforementioned sec- 
tion should be cast out as deadwood. 

There aie many other areas of the constitution that need 
changing, but the above are two of the more easily recognized

Mom, But injoyabk 

November 9, 1966 Page 3 



by Rob Greene 

Thursday, November third, a day 
I'll never forget. I remember the 
events involved all too clearly. It 
was about 2:45 in the afternoon 
when I entered the theatre to see 
"Dead Heat on a Merry-Go- 

The plot was unexcusably weak, 
it has been done and said before, 
and so has the sub-plot. Here, 
alone, as you may have gathered 
from past t:olumns, is reason 
enough for yours truly to have 
stalked indignantly out of the 
theatre— 'but I didn't. In fact I 
found myself doing something 
strange, something rare, some- 
thing I am personally not accus- 
tomed to doing . . . enjoying the 

As unbelievable as it may sound 
or seem, I enjoyed this rehashed, 
hackneyed, summer-rerun type of 
film; another hunk of celluloid 
the Hollywood moguls seem to be 
trying to push down our throats. 

The story line, as I've said, has 
been done. In a highly interwoven 
pattern of scenes we are in on a 
series of swindles, the utter pande- 
monium of the visit to our country 
by a Russian Premier, a peren- 
nial screen classic of the perfect 
crime, impersonation, bed-hopping, 
et cetera; a conglomeration of 
"Rotten to the Core", "Tom 
Jones", "The Wrong Box", and 
altogether too many others too 
numerous to mention, due to the 
limited space here.

Naval Officer Recruiting 

According to Mrs. Broyles of the 
Guidance Center, the Naval Offi- 
cer Recruiting Team will be on 
Campus Thursday, November 10, 
from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. 
They are scheduled to be in the 
Student Activity Center. 

SSCQ Test 

Applications for the Selective 
Service College Qualification Test, 
to be given November 18 and 19, 
are available in the Guidance 
Center, and at the Selective Serv- 
ice Center. 

Those eligible for the test are 
young men who have not pre- 
viously taken the test and those 
with Selective Service number. 


Applications for the annual 
NROTC qualification test are now 
available from Mrs. Broyles in the 
guidance office and at the U. S. 
Navy Recruiting Station in Riviera 

Registration for the test, to be 
held December 10, closes Novem- 
ber 18. 

All male citizens who will be at 
least 17, and not 21 on June 30, 
1967 and are now high school 
seniors or graduates are eligible 
for the exam. 

A successful candidate will re- 
ceive financial aid for four years 
of college. Upon graduation he is 
commissioned as an officer in the 
U. S. Navy or U. S. Marine Corps. 

Director-Writer Bernard Girard 
keeps this high-speed pace rolling 
along with nary a snag. Perhaps 
this could be a fault, in the sense 
that for some, the picture may 
move too fast, therefore causing 
confusion, which ipso facto will 
bring about a sense of dislike in 
regards to the film as a whole. 
Be this a fault or be it not, Girard 
deserves a great deal of credit in 
keeping the continuity of '"Dead 
Heat" going, 

Another factor that most movie- 
goers take for granted to such an 
extent that it is many times over- 
looked, is the music score. In this 
picture Stu Phillips' scoring of 
the same melodic line into the 
various moods of the film is 
ingenious and catchy, and deserv- 
ing of great merit. 

James Coburn, a man of all too 
many talents heretofore unnoticed, 
is the star, and the picture. He 
fairly walks away with it. It isn't 
really too hard to comprehend 

that many, many people ft,

This Month 
Marks Fall 
Of Drama! 

This month marks the anniver- 
sary of an important event on 
campus. The November 22, 1956 
copy of the Beachcomber related 
this humorous experience: 

"Recently Watson B. Duncan, 
III, stood before his English liter- 
ature classes as usual; his lecture 
topic on that fateful day, "The 
Rise and Development of English 
Drama." During Duncan's motion- 
ing came the fall of the Duncan 
drama; one said button failed to 

"Duncan leaped from the room, 
crisis in hand, and returned in 
crimson hues to a roaring audi- 
ence. Students later congratulated 
him for holding up during the rest 
of the day." 

Happy anniversary Mr. Duncan!

Tryouts On Thursday 
For Reader's Theatre 

Tryouts for "A Demon In My 
View," a reader's theatre produc- 
tion of the prose and poetry of 
Edgar Allan Poe, take place at 
3:30 and 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in 
the AV Programming Room on 
the first floor of the LRC. 

Tryout scripts are available on 
reserve in the library or may be 
obtained from Josh Crane, direc- 
tor of forensics. They include 
prose and poetry, and are de- 
signed to give the student a chance 
to show how well he can under- 
stand passages, interpret the mood 
and meaning of them, and dem- 
onstrate his versatility. 

Crane is looking for a variety 
of vocal types to compose a cast 
of a minimum of five men and 
four women. He stated, "We'll 
need a full range of voices from 
the deep, resonant type to the 
high, clear tone, both in male 
and female voices." 

"A Demon In My View," sched- 
uled for December 1, 2 and 3, is 
free of charge to students and the 
public. Reserved seats, however, 
will be made available first to 
JC students and their guests to 
insure that those who have paid 
student activity fees have the best

HELP! ! ! This column needs a title, and we here at the 
Beachcomber office are trying to enlist your help. I guess 
the basic reason for this needed change is that yours truly 
is finding himself getting somewhat upset at being misno- 
mered as "Campus." For this reason alone, I feel a change 
is due. 

* * * 

This past week has seen the demise of a dear and close 
friend to all those associated with the PBJC campus. Yes, our 
septic tank has been removed, and needless to say, will be 
sorely missed by all. I suppose I feel sorriest for any and all 
returning alumni, journeying back to these hallowed grounds 
only to find an empty spot where once stood a faithful servant 
of the school. It is gone, but far from forgotten. 

This month's award for excellence in Crud goes to Pat 
Boone, for his latest song hit (?) "Wish You Were Here." This, 
in case you haven't heard it yet, is a swingin' little ditty about 
Pat, who is supposedly serving in Viet Nam, and is compos- 
ing either a letter or song of sorts to his buddy back home. 
It contains such memorable lyrics as: 

"Come on over and I'll introduce you to the Cong ..." 

"Here I am a-duckin', and a-dodgin' and a-fightin' . . ." 
All this, set to a rock-country rhythm makes for memorable 
music. So, to you Mr. Boone, and to your writer, we rever- 
ently place thumb on nose . , . 

* * * 

For bravery above and beyond the call of duty, I propose 
a salute to those "civilians" who valiantly attempt to out-drive 
us down the stretch of Congress Avenue, from Southern Boule- 
vard to the JC. The daily drag does, though, take its toll. Seems 
that any one of the five drivers I have seen that spot us 
coming, take the easy way out . . . they pull over. Now this 
iction is not in many cases an act of cowardice per se, for in 
trying to rationalize it, I have attempted to place myself 
in their shoes: 

There I am, peacefully driving down Congress at about 
8-30 in the morning. Suddenly, in my rear-view mirror, I see, 
pulling off of Southern Boulevard a stream of cars of infinite 
number, and all of them coming directly towards me. At first, 
I figure that in the span of time between their entrance onto 
my stretch of road, and when they finally catch up to me, 
the respective drivers will have made their choice of lanes. 

I, therefore, settle back down to my calm routine of 
casual driving. 

HORROR OF HORRORS . . . they are coming at me! 
listing and writhing amidst each other like two huge 
hons ... and THEY ARE COMING AT ME . . . 

Quickly, my mind starts to play tricks on me, like maybe 

leave me alone, but as they approach me at a greater 

. speed than I thought comprehensible, I am overcome 

"the thought of self-preservation, and I meekly pull 
t, tin' as the tumult passes, I cautiously re-enter the high- 
a> .md continue my journey . . . with a wary eye on the

It seems no team in the intramural basketball league can 
hold a candle to the X-TKLs. So with nobody on their level in 
the intramural league the Xs have been eyeing the inter- 
collegiate team for worthy competition. 

And why not? The Xs have a starting lineup that is prob- 
ably taller than the one Coach Tanner will start on his Pacer 
squad this season. With two 6'4" forwards in Steve Ives and 
Bill Rozinsky, and 6'5" center, Jeff Kearns, and the two 
Wenderoth bi others, Rich and Ray at 6'0" playing the guard 
.slots the Xs have a team that could give the Pacers a real 

The X-TKLs have dominated intramural league play ever 
since their first lopsided 92-9 win over Circle K. The closest 
they have come to losing since then came last Wednesday 
night when Alpha Phi blew an early 22-7 lead late in the first 
half. The Xs finally organized themselves and went on to win 
47-38 without the services of three starters who were absent 
horn the game. 

The first game for the Pacers on November 28 promises 
to be a full house as the P.B.J.C. hosts the Jamaican champs 
in a Scholarship Benefit game.

Pacer basketball members will be travelling in style this 
year. Travelling in an aii-conditioned bus they will stay in 
Howard Johnsons, Quality Courts, or Holiday Inns and eat

Beller Explains To Veterans 
The Holdup On Gl Checks 

by Gayle McElroy 
Kent Mitchell 

Through the efforts of Congress- 
man Paul G. Rogers, Mr. Earl 
Beller, assistant adjudication offi- 
cer, spoke to the Veterans Club 
Tuesday, November 8, in an at- 
tempt to rectify absence of over- 
due G. I. checks. 

The issue became of major im- 
portance following prolonged de- 
lay by campus vets in receiving 
money assured them under the 
hew G. I. Bill, which became law 
in Februarv. 

As a direct result of a letter 
written to Congressman Rogers, 
the St. Pete office called to say 
PBJC vets were the only ones 
who seemed to be having any 
problems and that Rogers was in- 
vestigating the matter. 

Ironically, at the same time, the 
Beachcomber received a copy of 
the St. Petersburg Junior College 
newspaper with an editorial en- 
titled "VA Payments Missing." 

Over a week later, Mr. Donald 
Cook, PBJC Veterans Club ad- 
visor, received a letter from the 
Coordinator of the Department of 
Veterans Benefits, Mr. E. Silber- 
mati, saying that he was sending 

a four man team to St. Pete to 
uncover the holdup. 

Veterans received further notice 
that Beller, representing the St. 
Pete office, would be available at 
school November 8 to answer 

It was a little late to answer 
some of the questions, though, due 
to dropout of five veterans. Ac- 
cording to Cook, these men were 
forced to quit school, in efforts to 
secure a full-time job enabling 
them to support their families. 
Promptness of back checks would 
have prevented this situation. 

Other men were forced to drop 
courses (meaning reduced pay- 
ment under the G. I. Bill) 
enabling them to work a 40 hour 
week just because of overdue 

Beller was confronted with prob- 
lems such as: 

"I just NOW got my August 

"Well, I've received nothing 
since two-thirds of my July 

"I got a check for 54c." 

"I received 2 temporary certifi- 
cates of eligibility, what now?" 

"I enrolled August 22 and have 
never received anything." 

jA - 





CIRCLE K VEEP, Jon Whitmev, right, accepts a deed 
to the landscaping at the entrance sign at the north- 
west corner of the campus from Mr. Andy Machac, 
member of Southside Kiwanis. 

The $7,500 sign erected as a joint project of Circle 
K and Southside Kiwanis, was dedicated on Sunday, 
November 6. 

A portion of the Dlame was 
placed by Beller on the fact that 
the Computer Programming (main 
office, Hines, Illinois) is relatively 
new and flaws are still being cor- 
rected. He added that, "Florida 
has 17,000 claims to process from 
junior colleges, universities, and 
private institutions." 

uuring the air strike a bag con- 
taining over 150 veterans' papers 
was lost, and had to be sent back 
to Florida and filled out again. 
Returning it by mail, the same 
batch was lost a second time. 

Vets that attended the summer 
session have not received their 
checks yet, due to an error in the 
school handbook. The error was 
corrected in a letter written by 
Miss Wilson, in charge of PBJC 
vet affairs, which the VA denies 

Another snafu reported was a 
foul-up of office machinery in 
which the computer tape was be- 
ing fed the wrong information for 
"a good while" without the VA 
knowing it. This caused several 
more weeks of delays. 

PBJC Vets Advisor, Donald 
Cook, feels that Beller's trip was 
beneficial and that veterans will 
soon receive overdue checks. 

^- y^- Ik- 
Veteran Solves 
His Problem 

As a last resort, one vet called 
the Miami Herald's Action Line 
with the following story resulting. 
"I am a college student and am 
working 40 hours a week as a 
janitor to provide a living for 
my family. My wife is expecting 
a baby in December and I just 
learned from the doctor we have 
to guarantee payment of the deliv- 
ery fees in advance or we will 
have to look elsewhere to get the 
baby delivered. I am attending 
school under the GI Bill and have 
been paid $45 for two weeks in 
August. The government owes me 
$300 for September and October. 
I have an insurance policy which 
will pay $200 on the baby but only 
after delivery. 

My wife and I are very upset 
over the prospects of not having 
a doctor deliver our baby. I can't 
get a loan because we are barely 
getting by now. We have already 
paid eight visits to the doctor. Can 
you help us?— Delray Beach. 

Action Line called Mrs. Pat 
Avery of the Community Chest 
and she got busy calling. Two 
hours later the welfare office got 
it worked out so you can have the 
baby delivered by guaranteeing 
your doctor he would be paid."

MEMBERS of the dance band practice for tonight's fall 

Bonds Present Concert 
Tonight In Auditorium 

The Stage and Concert Bands 
present a Concert at 8:00 tonight 
in the Auditorium. 

The forty member Concert Band 
is to perform the, eighteenth cen- 
tury "Military Symphony"; "Pol- 
ovetzian Dances"; "Borodin", a 
nineteenth century Romantic 
piece; and a Suite by the English 
composer Gordon Jacob. They 
will also play Roger's and Ham- 
merstein's "Sound of Music"; 

"Trumpets Feat" by Leroy and 
Roger's. "Buglers Holiday." 

The Stage Band is to play Origi- 
nal Arrangements of Jazz num- 
bers and Mitchell St. Martin's 
"Picnic Theme." 

Soloists for the concert are 
Jerry Hermanson on trumpet; 
Richard Franklin on trombone and 
Bill Quigby on drums. 

The concert is open, to all, free 
of charge. 

The Count V Appears 
At Friday Night Dance 

The Count Five, currently riding 
the wave of popularity created by 
their recording "Psychotic Reac- 
tion," are to perform here Friday 
in an SGA-sponsored dance from 
8:30 to 11:30 p.m., in the SAC. 

Tickets for the event are being 
distributed today and tomorrow 
from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in 
room SAC 7 of the Student Activ- 
ity Center, North Lounge. 

Two tickets per student are 
available through presentation of 
ID cards. No one can gain en- 
trance to the event unless he pre- 
sents these tickets at the door. 

Manning the dance is the Senate 
Social Committee, headed by 
Chairman Bill Sedmack. 

The Social Committee, working 
on a $8,000 budget for the 1966- 
1967 year, is currently considering 
bringing big name entertainment 
to our campus, as was done last 
year with The Mitchell Trio and 
The Brothers Four. 

Plans of the committee call for 
Friday's and other dances 
throughout the year, a concert by 
a national group late January or 
early February, and the annual 
Spring Frolics later in the Winter 


Utfter members of the Social 
Committee are Senators Jane

Kreidler, John Foster, and Dave

We Need Busses 

At tomorrow's Senate meeting Sophomore Senator Karen 
Jacobs will introduce a bill to charter busses to take students 
to several away basketball games throughout the season. 

The bill states the games that busses will be sent to, assur- 
ing the Senate time to publicize the trips well in advance. The 
Senate could also receive a special rate from the bus company 
by scheduling several trips at once, instead of on a one trip at 
a time basis as was done last year. 

Intercollegiate sports were brought to PBJC through 
Student Government action, so the Senate is refusing support 
to one of its own programs by not chartering the busses. 

Boards Need Approval 

The constitutional amendments establishing the Student 
Boards were passed by the Student Senate and the student 
body with the stipulation that they would have to be approved 
by the student-faculty Student Activities Committee. 

Interviews are being conducted to fill the boards yet 
the Student Activities Committee has not received a single 
copy of the amendments. We don't even know if the bill intro 
ducing the amendments has been signed by SGA President 
Chuck Massey. ' 

Committee chairman Dean Robert Moss has stated several 
toes that he will distribute copies of the amendment to thi 
other members of the committee, yet no one from the SGA 
has come forth with the copies.

Committee should not approve the amendments, so Student

First Port 
la Dolce 

by Rob Greene 

Expressionism, in the form of 
cinema, sadly enough, does not 
seem to go over very well in 
America. Ipso-facto, the names of 
Frederico Fellini and Ingemar 
Bergman do not, to most, mean 
anything. These two directors, 
from Italy and Sweden respec- 
tively, are synonymous with cine- 
matic expressionism. They do, in 
other words, put on film just what 
most viewers do not wish to see 
let alone identify with. This, then, 
could very well be termed as one 
of the major factors of the new 
wave of European films. 

I remember my first futile at- 
tempts at seeing Fellini's "La

Dolce Vita." I was in the eighth 
grade at P.S. No. 63, back in Buf- 
falo, New York. I know that I 
truly wanted to see the picture 
because of the glowing reviews 
it received from those of my 
class-mates who described it with 
such superlatives as "dirty," 
"sexy," "naked," and all the way 
up to the highest compliment to 
be paid to a picture . . . "she was 
built." I remember, also, the 
scene that ensued when I inform- 
ed my mother thus: 

"Mommy, I'm going to see "La 
.Dolce Vita." 
And her response: 
"Over my dead body." 
I never really realized until now 

"The Adding 
Cycle In The 

Life Of Man 

by A. W. Kent 

The Adding Machine, by Elmer 
L. Rice, is a complete cycle in 
the life of a man as seen through 
the eyes of a machine-oriented 
society in an expressionistic man- 

Mr. Zero, portrayed by Bert 
Merriam, as a steady, clock- 
watching fixture in an account- 
ant's office reflects the values of 
little Massman in a large deper- 
sonalized almost Brave New 
Worldish society, whose only real 
fault is that he is like everyone 
else. When replaced by art adding 
machine he is unable to adjust to 
the new situation and murders his 
boss. Mr. Zero is a spoke in a 
wire wheel; when sprung out of 
place tries to destroy the system, 
but unable to do so is destroyed 
by the system. 

Mrs. Zero, (Alice Summons) his 
nagging booze breathed, all too 
real wife of 25 years shows how 
a routine life can stifle the imagi- 
nation of the individual, driving 
him to selfishness, bickering and 
pettiness, but that the spirit of

Daisy (Gene Coggin) plays an 
infatuated infantilist who is in love 
with love Hollywood style. Her 
embodiment of Southern prudish-

alizes and releases her sexuality 
on Mr. Zero. 

The use of a color backdrop in

The weakest scene is the "place 
of justice." It is almost superfluous 
in that it is intended to reveal 
more of Mr. Zero's character, it 
fails because it is nothing but a 
restatement of what is already 
known— he's a zero. 

The purpose and direction of life 
is a question ably posed asking if

Before, when I was comparatively new to this campus,

In an attempt to show a more serious side of my nature, 
I wish to propose a new ruling. I refer to an incident wherein 
an instructor was reprimanded for releasing his students 
before the sixty-minute instruction time had elapsed. 

I find this to be nothing more than an attempt to suppress 
the academic freedom which is somewhat lacking on this 
campus. Is it not bad enough that student expression is as 
olose to being dead on this campus without further suppres- 
sing the instructors? 

It is the personal opinion of this columnist that there is 
an explanation due here, as to the extent to which the admin- 
istration is going to proceed in further tieing down all those 
involved with happenings and activities on the PBJC campus.

Mr. Charles Sutherland was elec- 
ted president of the Florida Asso- 
ciation of Public Junior Colleges 
Friday, November 4 at their state 
convention in Daytona Beach. 

Sutherland, of the Social Science 
Department, is on sabatical leave 
at the University of Florida this 

Twenty-five junior colleges are 
members of FAPJC. Many private 
institutions were also represented 
at the conference. 

At a recent meeting of the State 
Board of Regents the trimester 
system was done away with and 
the quarter system adopted. 

This decision affects only the 
state universities, but the junior 
colleges will likely also go to the 
quarter system so that students 
will not run into transfer conflicts. 

Adoption of the quarter system 
means complete revision in the 
state schools' academic calendar. 

All courses taught on a trimes- 
ter basis must be revised to fit 
the quarter system. The units of 
credit are to be a quarter hour, 
whhh is equivalent to two-thirds 
of a trimester hour of credit. 

State Student Governments 
Create Legislative Council 

The Florida Collegiate Legisla- 
tive Council was formed at the 
recent Florida Junior College Stu- 
dent Government Association Con- 
vention, in Gainesville. 

The council serves as a lobby 
at the State Legislature to insure 
the passage of legislation favor- 
able to higher education. Plans for 
the formation of the group are 
still to be made. 

A resolution calling for more 
control of Student Activities Budg- 
ets by Student Government was 

also passed by the FJCSGA dele- 
gates. The resolution is to point 
up the lack of student voice in 
policy making on many junior 
college campuses. 

If PBJC goes on the quarter 
system the fall quarter will begin 
in late September and end in mid- 
December. The winter quarter 
lasts from early January until 

The spring quarter is from late 
March until early June, and the 
summer quarter lasts from mid- 
June to late August.

From The 
Sports Mike 

With Mike Boggy 

The Pacers of PBJC will make their debut November 28 
in the new gymnasium when they clash with the Jamaican 

Coach Jim Tanner won't name the starting five until game 
lime but it's my guess that 6-7 Lloyd Dollins, 6-4 Kent Waters 
and 5-9 Manuel Carreno will definitely be on the floor for 
the initial tip-off. To say who will play the other two spots 
I may as well pull names from a hat. 

For the Jamaican All-Stars 6-4Mi forward Leroy Moore 
and 6-4 center Warren Chin Shui will be their tallest players. 
Coach Tanner knows little about the Jamaican team but 
expects ' them to have a fast ball club exhibiting exceptional 
ball-handling ability. The Jamaican team will have the advan- 
tage in experience over the Pacers as Palm Beach will be the 
sixth south Florida college on their schedule. 

The Pacer premiere will be the only game this season that 
will charge admission. The proceeds will be used for athletic 
scholarships. The prices for students (both high school and 
junior college) will be 50c and $1.00 for adults.

The X-TKL's of intramural league had the wind knocked 
out of them this week when the Generals handily defeated the 
Xs 44-22. Before bowing to the Generals the X-TKL's wanted 
to play the intercollegiate team for some worthy competition. 
The possibility of a contest between the varsity squad and an 
intramural squad are nil. 

With a little insight one can easily see that a contest 
would not be feasible for the following" reasons: 

(1) A game that resulted in a high-marginal win for the 
intercollegiate team would probably breed such comments as 
"Well, what can you expect . . . they are supposed to be the 
best in the school." or "Gee! Coach Tanner didn't have to pour 
it on THAT hardl" 

(2) Any intercollegiate basketball team that is defeated by 
its own intramural team may as well "throw in the towel for 

the year." 

As one basketball player put it, "If they are as good as 
they say they are, why the hell didn't they try out for the 
basketball team to begin with?" 

So the few that thought they had a good idea (including 
me) had just as well forget it-it's bad policy (to say the least) 
for an intramural team to cry for the blood of their own inter- 
collegiate team.

Dr. Jim Miles, Dean of Men, 
Robert C. Moss, Mr. David Jen- 
kins, Mrs. Ruth Brofft, and Mrs. 
■fcetty Childers made up the panel 
'that judged the talent portion of 
*he contest. 

In the talent competition Sandy 
Kahler, Miss Galleon, performed 
a skit depicting a tour of Europe 
by using a different hat for each 
country visited. 

First runner-up, Grace Smith, 
played an interlude and "Shangra 
La" on the piano, Karen Jacobs, 
second runner-up, did a take-off 
on comedienne Phyllis Diller while 
third runner-up Linda Slominski 
gave a dramatic reading of "The 
Face on the Barroom Floor." 

Miss Galleon and her court were 
announced before an estimated 
crowd of 1500 at Friday night's 
SGA dance featuring the Count 

V, nationally known recording 
group from California. 

"Right now I've got a first 
string of 10 men and a good bench 
of three," Tanner says. 

This year Tanner's problems 
are fewer than last year when a 
lack of scholarship players, an off- 
campus gymnasium, and a disap- 
pointing 1-18 record affected Pacer 

Three of last year's team are on 
this year's squad including the 
tallest and smallest. 

Loyd Dollins, of Riviera Beach, 
"grew some last summer" and is 
now 6' 7". At 175 pounds he is 
slender, and still filling out. Coach 
Tanner will count on his rebound- 
ing heavily. 

Charlie Wright, another player 
from last year, is a 6'1" play- 
maker that graduated from Palm 
Beach High School. 

Manuel Carreno, at 5'9" and 153 
pounds, is the smallest man on 
the squad and "should have been 
all conference guard if we had 
selected an all-conference team 
last year," Tanner says. 

Other big men include two that 
are not from Suncoast Conference 

Schools. Kent Waters, &4W and 
190 pounds won all-conference, 
most reliable player and other 
awards at Orlando Evans. 

Tom Nead, 6'4" and 192, was a 
key player in a fine Plant City 
team which went to the state tour- 
nament year before last. A team- 
mate, Steve McDonald, 6'1" and 
160 pounds, was named to the all- 
state tournament team that same 

Most of the coastal high schools 
in the Suncoast have placed men 
on the PBJC squad. 

Four are from Lake Worth: 
Rick Bradshaw, Bart Brooks, Pat 
McCaffrey, all from last year's 
Trojans, and Skip Measelle, a key 
player from earlier, who spent 
last year at Mercer University. 

Shawn McElroy, Seacrest, was 
on the all-star team of the east- 
em division of the Suncoast, along 
with Bradshaw and Brooks.

The resignation of Freshman 
Senator Frank Mario was accept- 
ed by the Student Senate at last 
"Thursday's meeting. 

His letter or resignation said, 
*'Due to unfbrseen circumstances, 
X am not able to attend the Sen- 
ate meetings, and would hereby 
*ike to present my resignation as 
^. Senator." 

Mario was brought up before 
the Senate for impeachment the 

previous week because of a Sen- 
ate by-law stating that senators 
missing three meetings must be 
brought up for impeachment. It 
was moved to impeach him at that 
time, but the Senate decided to 
wait one week, giving him a 
chance to resign. 

If a Senator resigns, the vacan- 
cy is filled by executive depart- 
ment appointment; but an im- 
peached Senator's seat is filled by 
an election. 

To Increase Transcription 

Stenotype Machines Bought 

by Gayle McElroy 
Feature Editor 

An antiquated Bible axiom, ' He multiplieth 
words without knowledge," is soon to be amended 
by a shorthand class next term. 

PBJC has purchased 30 stenotype shorthand 
machines which offer speed and other advantages to 
shorthand students. 

A student who averages 120 wpm using Gregg 
shorthand should be able to take 200 wpm using one 
of these machine's, now used by many court 

Rather than duplicating the symbols now being 
taught, the machine, operated like a typewriter, is 
designed to reproduce letters or combinations of 

These shorthand machines, first introduced to 
Palm Beach County schools by PBJC, eliminate the 
problem of another's illegible transcription. With the 
stenotype each letter is typed out, whereas, in Gregg 
shorthand each individual shows slight deviations in 
letter formation, making reading difficult for others. 

A three-credit course in machine shorthand 
(BE-206) is offered next term on Monday and 
Wednesday night, and is available next fall for day 

demonstrates the advantages of the new sten- 
otype shorthand machine. The equipment is 
for a course, Machine Shorthand, to be 
offered next term

Where's Sadie? 

For two or three days last week it looked like there might 
have been a Sadie Hawkins -Dance tonight. 

I his proposed dance, sponsored by the Inter-Social Club 
Council has been „ n and off the activities calendar for sev- 

ZuTrl" ** . W T S ^S aIly Cance3ed ' fOT this te ™ at least, 
at last Thursdays ISCC meeting. 

The Sadie Hawkins Dance 'was not scheduled early in 
he term us was done in past years, because the annual Dollars 
for Scholars Drive was moved to a weekend, instead of a week 
long affair. 

For previous Sadie Hawkins Dances clubs on campus 
sponsored candidates for L'il Abner and Daisy Mae; members 
collected money for their candidates, with the clubs gathering 
the most money winning L'il Abner and Daisy Mae. All funds 
collected went to the Dollars for Scholars program. 

Last week several clubs were collecting for tonight's 
would-be dance with some degree of success (one club member 
collected over twenty dollars in one day), even though publicity 
for the event was nil. 

In early October Thi Del planned to sponsor the Sadie 
Hawkins Dance because ISCC was dragging its feet. Clubs 
were invited to participate, the date was placed on the activi- 
ties calendar, the gym approved for the dance, and the bands 
contacted, but ISCC quickly met and refused to allow Thi Del 
to hold the event. 

Among ISCC's objections to the dance being sponsored by 
Thi Del were (1) publicity had to be made three weeks in 
advance and (2) not all clubs had been contacted. These were 
two of the reasons why ISCC canceled the dance for tonight. 

It is obvious to us that Thi Del is a doer and ISCC is 
merely a talker. 

Last Poll Nullified 

The 1214 results of the most recent Senate bi-weekly poll 
are completely useless, according to Sophomore Senator Chris 
Stephens, a member of the Senate Bi-weekly Poll Committee, 
During the day of the poll several students were seen to 
be putting upwards of 25 polls at a time into the ballot boxes. 
Two observers termed these students to be "social clubbers." 
One of the questions on the poll asked if the students 
favored social clubs on campus. Senator Stephens said that 
most of the tabulated polls favored social clubs, but this 
question received more no's than any of the several other ques- 
tions on the polls. 

If those stuffing the polls were social clubbers, we cannot 
help but wonder if they thought social clubs would be thrown 
off campus if the poll came out unfavorably toward them? 

The Senate conducts these polls to gain general student 
opinion on varied issues in an attempt to serve better the 
student body. If one group of student feels that they must stuff 
the polls to assure their acceptance on campus, maybe this 
group should examine its true value to the college and to 

Perhaps the Senate should take the suggestion offered by 
Senator Stephens when she said, "I see no sense in having more 
polls if students abuse them as they did this one!"

by Rob Greene 

Freely translated from the Ital- 
ian, "La Dolce Vita" means "the 
sweet life." To many, this depic- 
tion of a form of the sweet life 
doesn't quite meet their specifi- 
cations. Then again, to many 
others, it does. This, then is the 
basic foundation of Fellini's new- 
est screen question . . . just what 
is the sweet life, and where does 
one find it? 

Can you, a student at PBJC, 
claim a hold on this type of life? 
What would you have to do to con- 
sider yourself an inhabitant of the 
group? How? And maybe even 
more personal, why? 

One's immediate reaction to 
these questions would have to be 
based on one's reaction to the 
film. Those who saw it have, in 
all probability, formed their own 
answers and reactions to others' 
answers. I personally have had 
many people, both here on cam- 
pus and at work, and even in my 
own neighborhood, confront me 
with one basic question about the 
people who inhabited Fellini's film 
work, and what governed their 
With all due respects to a Miss 

Albertson (and also to show her 
that I do know what her big words 
mean), I would be brought to the 
main conclusion that they are of 
the genus and species of Stoic. 
This assumption is based on my 
own personal definition of this 
class, for those actions which they 
are guilty of and why they were 
committed. They are stoics be- 
cause they did what they did and 
didn't really give a damn. Today 
is here— we shall live it; yester- 
day is gone, so to hell with it; and 
if tomorrow comes, we shall live 
it to the fullest. There are no emo- 
tional ties in their lives, that 
would only be passe, and the ex- 
pelling of boredom is their prime 
concern. The presence of boredom 
serves only as a linking mechan- 
ism between their erotic parties 
and fantasies and the "outside 

"I am bored" moans the social- 
ite, "You— do a strip." 

A second factor to be reckoned 
with in constituting one's dolce 
vita is the question of morals . . . 
shall we abide by them or shall 
they just be a word to be ig- 
nored, a facet of life to be ridi- 
culed, laughed at, and then finally 
forgotten? Shall we forget the

Dear Editor: ' 

Since it has been made anf 
of, and seems to be the cdmj 
of many students, I feel it si- 
be brought to the attention i 
those affected; a few facts t 
our library that hitherto mayt 
been unknown. 

First, a clarification of t. 
should be made concerning 
"conference rooms." The t 
"conference" to the studeK 
notes the active consulting p 
liberating together. Howevt 
has been brought to my atte' 
that our own Library Lea r 
Resources Center defines it i 
place for study only. So, to t 
of you who may have been it- 
by this word, I hereby submit' 
ban to save you from a hor 
fate should you mistakenly cf 
to "confer" in these rooms. 

A question which may an* 
the student's mind is, "Whs 
the rest of the library for?" 
answer— for the same purpo> 
the conference rooms. There' 
what is the purpose for their ^ 
struction? t 

One final word of warning, t 
is a finite number of stoi 
which constitute "too many, 
these conference rooms. I 
careful observation I have nar 
ed it down to somewhere bet»

BE CAREFUL. Other f

Trivia, as mentioned in last week's column, has finally 
made a foothold here on the PBJC campus. The team is being 
composed, and other near-by colleges are being notified and 
challenged as to the nature of the "sport." Let us hope that 
this team will not only be a fantasy, but a reality in the very 
near future. 

Time to brag . . . Seems that through the circulation dcpt.'s 
efforts, a copy of our 'Comber managed to get into the hands 
of the C. T. Ward Journalistic Commentary Co., and yours 
truly has been offered a long-term position on the staff (back 
in Buffalo) . . . which he is seriously considering.

cafeteria. I read coffee grounds. I usually wait until 1 have 
finished it, but lately I find that those that float when the cup 
is half drunk tell a much better story. Kudoes to the Cafeteria. 

If you've managed to read this far, I feel almost compelled 
to go on. Remember that large hole that was reported about, 
say, about four weeks ago?? Well, fellow motorist, you may 
have noticed as I had predicted, the sand filler has worn away 
giving new birth to a dear (?) friend.

I feel as though I should pass on the kind and benevolent 
gesture put forth for Burton Wilkins by our Dean of Men. He 
has very kindly offered to erect more posts for the aforemen- 
tioned perennial campaigner's signs, slingers, and other perti- 
nent paraphernalia. 

One final word ... in reference to the cafeteria (what 
else?) I wonder just how long the snack bar will offer a' "special" 
before it becomes a regular?

Two other men, who are not

team a lift after the first term 
ends, December 16. 

Jeff Stover, from Lake Park, is 
in the "small, fast" class at 5'10"

Lincoln Thomas, Boynton Beach, 
is now 6'4" and 176 pounds, and 
"can jump higher than any man

Speculating the Jamaica 
champs, Tanner says, "We don't

individual players seem to stress 
good defense."

The Jamaica team is roughly in 
the junior college age bracket 

ranging from 18 to 21, and is 
composed of students except for 
four men who are working in 
industrial and commercial jobs. 

The Jamaicans began a tour of 
Florida November 17 at Florida 
Presbyterian under the auspices 
of the People to People movement 
backed by the U. S. State Depart- 

The Pacer opener will be a 
benefit game for PBJC's athletic 
scholarship program, and PBJC 
students, who are admitted to 
other games on their identifica- 
tion cards, will pay the 50 cent 

student admission fee. Admission 
is $1 for adults. 

Tanner, who was optimistic be- 
fore last season with a small, in- 
experienced squad, is generally 
cautious this year, even though 
his squad has some experience, is 
loaded with talent, and has "more 
enthusiasm and drive than any 
team I've ever worked with," 

All he would predict about won- 
lost records is that "we'll win 
more than last year." 

But the gleam in his eye says 
better than words that the Pacers 
will be nobody's doormat this

Driving tayups with either hand

The existence of these student

The amendments were passed 
unanimously by the SGA Senate,

"The biggest advantage of 
prints is that they allow people

Houser said.

Edgar Allen Poe 
Opens Friday Night 
In Reader's Theatre 

by Raul Ramirez 
News Editor 

"A Demon in my View," a 
Reader's Theatre production of 
works by Edgar Allan Poe, is 
to be presented here at 8:14 p.m. 
Friday and Saturday nights. 

The third Reader's Theatre pro- 
duction presented at PBJC's stage, 
"A Demon in my View," features 
some of Poe's best poems and 
tales of terror, such as "The Pit 
and the Pendulum," "The Telltale 
Heart," "The Masque of the Red 
Death," and "The Cast of Amon- 

A four track sound system and 
a giant projector screen are tech- 
nical aids to be used in transport- 
ing the spectator to the nowhere 
land of terror. "This production 
is more of an experience than a 

performance," commented Josh 
Crane, speech instructor in charge 
of the production. 

Another unique aspect of this 
Reader's Theatre production is the 
display of inner expressionism 
through character in voice. 

Burt Merriam, winner of the 
1966 Phi Rho Pi Best Supporting 
Actor award, heads the list of 
students participating in the pre- 
sentation. Other cast members are 
Terry Beaver, a descendant of 
Edgar Allan Poe; Gary Breiten- 
beck, John Murphy, Ronnie Gies, 
Linda Cullen, Toni Copeland, and 
Camela People. 

Two free tickets per student are 
available in the box office in the 
Auditorium today, tomorrow, and 
Friday through presentation of 
identification cards.

You Did It! 

You did it! You finally did it! You went to a basketball 
game! At Monday night's game against the Jamaica Champs 
an estimated crowd of 500 turned out to watch the Pacers 
handily defeat the Champs, 92-35. 

Far from a full house (the gym has a capacity of over 
2,000) the crowd was composed of mostly students. This leads 
us to believe that the Pacer cagers will have more support than 
they were given last year when they finished a dismal season 
(1-18) in a borrowed gym (John I. Leonard High). 

The crowd Monday night set an attendance record (it 
was the first game in the new gym) but it was far from a 
respectable turnout when you consider the fact ihat there are 
over 3,000 students enrolled here. 

With a little effort from you an attendance record could 
be set with every additional home game. A new gym, a team 
with a possibility of winning the district crown, and a free 
admission should be reason enough to attend the games. 

The next home game is this Friday night against Florida 
Keys Junior College. Come out and see the Pacers as they 
reverse last year's record. 

Vas Judging Fair? 

The Miss Galleon Contest for this year is over, and 
noughts turn towards next year's competition. 

The contest was run considerably well this year, with the 
exception of the method in which the contestants were judged. 

After interviews before a panel of five students, ten 
finalists were selected from the field of eighteen entrants. The 
girls were questioned as to hobbies, major fields of study, 
and their future plans. 

The finalists performed their various talents before a panel 
of five faculty members. Miss Galleon was selected after this 
portion of the contest 

The student panel did not judge the talent, and the faculty 
did not hear the interviews. It is quite possible that the girl 
with the best talent could have been eliminated at the inter- 
views, while a girl with no talent at all could make the finals 
simply because of her interview 

We are not saying that this did happen, but neither do 
we discount the possibility of it occurring in the future years. 

The fairest way to judge the contest is to have the same 
panel-a panel composed of students and faculty-judge both 
the talent competition and the interviews.

Pacers Dump Champs; Play Here Friday 

by Mike Boggy ^^^w^^i;!!^^^®^^-** ''**^ t 

by Mike Boggy 
Sports Editor 

The Palm Beach Junior College basketball team rolled to 

their first victory of the 1966-67 season Monday night with a 
92-35 triumph over an outclassed Jamaican All Star team. 

Playing in their own gym for 
the first time m PBJC history, 
the Pacers were never headed as 
Shawn McElroy took the opening 
tip-off and put two points on the 
scoreboard with the game only 3 
seconds old. 

The Pacer starters then reeled 
off eight points before the Jamai- 
cans' Jeff Richardson finally 
meshed two points. 

Coach Jim Tanner substituted 
freely through-out the game as a 
crowd of about 300 people saw 
every Pacer hit the scoring 

Early in the game second-string- 
er Steve McDonald scored 7 points 
in the two minutes to pull the 
Pacers from a narrow 15-13 lead 
to a more comfortable 22-13 

Starters Kent Waters and Man- 
uel Carreno won the night's scor- 
ing honors with 18 and 15 points. 
Waters collected eight points from 
the chanty stripe while pumping 
in five baskets from the field. 
Carreno' s fast break lay-ups and 
defensive steals accounted for 
most of his points 

Shawn McElroy also notched 13 
points for the first stringers 

Tom Nead, Tom McLaren and 
Pat McCaffrey came off the bench 
■n the second half to score eight 
loints apiece McCaffrey, a

fired up Pacers to 14 straight 
points in this period. 

The Pacers entertain Key West 
here Fnday night for their first 
home conference game. A victory 
for PBJC would avenge a 79-78 
loss at the hands of Key West last 

Lloyd Dollins, 6*7" starting cen- 
ter for the Pacers will be out of 
action for three weeks with a 
broken finger suffered in the

Just who Coach Tanner will sub-

Library Coordinator 

Speaks To Senate 
Concerning Problems 

Mr. Wiley Douglass, Coordinator 
of Library Services, spoke to the 
student Senate Thursday, Decem- 
ber 1, in the SAC Lounge. 

Douglass came to the Senate to 
ask the students' help with two 
critical problems m the library 
which are" of concern to the stu- 
dents and faculty. 

One problem he pointed out was 
that of obscene, "four letter 
words" being written on the walls 
and furniture m the library Al- 
ready two chairs, worth approxi- 
mately $100, have been removed 
from the study area because they 
can't get the "foul" language off 
them, Douglass commented. He 
asked students to reprimand 
those who are destroying the very 
equipment which their parents' 
taxes are paying for, even though 
the reprimandee may meet wise 

Another perplexing problem in 
the library is that of the noise. 
The study rooms are designecf for 
a maximum of four people for 
quiet study. If more than four are 
in these roms, in a short time, 
they will be breathing foul air. 
These rooms are by no means 
soundproof and this should be 
kept in mind by the fella who's 
just got to tell you the joke he 
heard last night. A librarian's re- 
buke doesn't seem to have any 
effect on the noise-makers; Doug- 
lass has asked the students' help 
with this also. If you would like a 

little quiet so you can read or 
study, ask for it, you may get a 
wise remark and then again you 
may get results, Douglass stated.

Christmas Comment 




A Look Forward . 

As we approach the Holiday Season, we again have the 
opportunity and the need both to look forward to the new year 
and back over the past year's record of achievement. Most of 
us will agree that we have accomplished less than we had 
hoped to do this year. 

If we can number among our achievements some measure 
of an increased sensitivity to the needs of our fellow men, a 
strengthening of our character and moral fiber, and a further 
development of our abilities to serve, then this has been a 
good year. 

As we celebrate the birth of Christ and all that He has 
meant to mankind, let us pray that somehow the Spirit of 
Christmas will enter the hearts of men throughout the world 
this Holiday Season. We pray that this Spirit may bring under- 
standing, and through understanding— peace and good will 
in the New Year. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

President, PBJC 

An Age Of Change 

Today is an age of change; an age of fast-paced exhausting 
demands. And in this day, it is refreshing, as it has always 
been, for us to stop our frantic pace-at least for a few days- 
m the observance of the birth of Christ. 

The Christmas holidays afford us an opportunity to be 
near those who are close and intimate to us. A time to feel 
secure in this hectic, non-trusting world. 

Many of us will work throughout the holidays, some will 
travel and others-hope; most-will do nothing but relax, and 
possibly reflect upon the achievements of the past fast-for- 
gotten semester. 

In Student Government we deal with nearly every aspect 
of student affairs and activities. We have met with, talked to 
and worked hard with social clubs, service clubs, independents' 
special interest groups, faculty and administrative members. 

J? or these reasons and because we are to share these holi- 
days with you, let us extend to you our very best wishes, for 
a very warm and meaningful Christmas.

Ashtrays For SAC 

The SGA Senate has unani- 
mously approved a bill to appro- 
priate $25 for the purchase of 
ashtrays to be used in the Student 
Activity Center Lounge. 

Final action on the bill, intro-

donate the needed ashtrays.

The theme of the show was "Fashion Set

man of the Music Department, and Miss 
Florence Adams, music instructor, played the 
piano and violin, respectively, for the event. 

by Bob Greene 

With the holiday season nearly 
upon us, I feel as though my very 
being should be brimmed full of 
good feeling and good will toward 
men, and so on; but I am not, and 
"The Professionals" didn't tend 
to help matters very much. In 
fact, not at all. 

To help those of you who haven't 
been fortunate enough to view this 
little epic, the story follows forth- 

Ralph Bellamy, whose wife 
(Claudia Carxlinalle) has been kid- 
napped by the mean old revolu- 
tionary leader of Mexico's inde- 
pendence (Jack Palance), hires 
Burt Lancaster, Lee Marvin, Rob- 
ert Ryan, and Woody Strode to 
bring her back. Now through all 
this, one must bear in mind that 
Ralph, whose name in the picture 
is J. W. Grant, has his name on 
everything in sight. Every lucra- 
tive business along the Pecos or 

Rio Grande has the brand of J. W 
Grant on it, in other words, he's 
as rich as they come. So, as one 
would come to expect of this kind 
of wealth, he hires four men to 
go on a sort of pre-war kamikaze 

So we set out with these four 
fearless fools on their assignment. 
First, we come across ten violent 
Mexicans, but valiant warriors 
conquer all odds, kill them off, 
and then, in 110-degree heat, bury 
them and a dead horse. Now how- 
ever, for the lack of space, I 
shan't go into the other absurdi- 
ties encountered, although I could 
go on for days. 

We finally arrive at the rebel 
camp of Jesus Raza. Big Bad 
Burt sets out to place charges of 
high explosives here and about, 
and is quite successful in this. He 
now lights the fuse, which he has 
strung over what seems to be half 
the camp, and NOBODY notices 

this burning fuse. Now, since I, 

is a 30-minute fuse, both he ( 
Marvin find time to make t 
way over to the hacienda qu \] 
time to find Maria and JeaiJ 
the throes of a passionate emir., 
au naturel. This brings out t 
truth of this whole mess; she l t 
been in love with Jesus f 
childhood, but at the request 
her father, she married G« s 
(Bellamy) Are you still with r 

This is also the first tlraej 
come upon Dear Claudia and f 
the remainder of the picture I 
do catch some faint "acfe 
whenever she hasn't got her bos 
spread out over the screen t& 
thunderstorm over a Kansas t 

As I said before, I could go- 
infinitely, but I wouldn't warl' 
ruin the smashing clima^ for tb. 
of you who have not as yet sees 

Surprisingly enough, Ricfc 
Brooks, responsible for "Efc 
Gantry," directed this mishnu 
of events in a semi-sane mac 
and academy award winner Mj: 
ice Jarre has composed the mn 
score, Doubtless this will ntr 
meet with the popularity of t 
foregone scoring of "Zhivap 
but it does help the picture a' 

A good shoot-em-up westem-jv 
A plausible Story line— possfls'- 
but I enjoyed its original vert: 
better, You may recall it too-

by Gayle McElroy 

"A little like what would hap- 
pen if you would squirt water on 
your television set" is how Mr. 
Ralph Kehoe, cafeteria manager, 
described one of the major prob- 
lems with the vending machines. 

Kehoe commented that early in 
the morning janitors hose down 
walls to alleviate spider webs and 

dirt and that the water gathers 
under the machines causing con- 
densation on the electrical points. 
This would prevent the machines 
from making a complete cycle, 
and put a halt to their proper 
functioning. Consequently, one 
might receive warm water, rather 
than hot chocolate or chicken 
"The janitors don't normally 

Yv. A 

DON STIFLER and his date, Ellen Duffy, enjoy the 
at last Saturday's Annual Tri Omega Christmas Ball, 
was held at Whitehall, in Palm Beach. 


Miss Rose M. Biancarosa, foreign 
language instructor, departs for 
Europe, December 19, on sabbati- 
cal leave. 

She is to journey from New 
York to Germany by plane, where 
a car she has purchased is await- 
ing her arrival. 

From Germany, she is to begin 
her trip to Italy by car. "This is 
one way to see the country, take 
pictures, and to be among the 

Once in Italy, she is to do ad- 
vance graduate study at the Flor- 
ida State University Study Center 

After Italy, she intends to spend 
two months in both France and 

In each country, Miss Bianca- 
rosa expects to live in pensions, 
that is to live in with the native 
families, and fulfill the statement 
"When in Rome, act as a Roman." 
Her aim is to live with the people, 
to speak their language, and to 
leam their customs. 

"I am going to try to get a 
practical knowledge of the Spanish 
and French I teach. I want to 
keep up with the changes in the 
languages. In this way, I gain 
more practical knowledge than 
any school can teach," Miss Bi- 
ancarosa explained. 

The PBJC instructor plans to 
visit briefly in England, Ireland, 
and Germany. 

Miss Biancarosa hopes to attend 
a language seminar in Paris this 
summer. She will be taking an 
eight-week course at Sorbonne. 
"This has been a life-long dream; 
I hope to come back enriched in 
the languages, and to be able to 
give my students greater knowl- 
edge of the subjects I teach." 

Miss Biancarosa, born of Italian 
parents, speaks English, French, 
Spanish, and Italian, received her 
bachelor's and master's degrees 
at Florida State University. She 
has done post-graduate work at 
the University of Florida. 


wash walls," refuted director of 
physical plant, Mr. Claude Ed- 
wards, and added that walls are 
supposed to be "hand washed." 
He stated that the walkways 
around the vending machines are 
washed once or twice weekly to 
eliminate spilled drinks, which 
would smell if not hosed down. 

With the humidity in Florida 
ranging from 55-90%, Edwards 
feels that humidity is a major con- 
tributor to condensation on the 
machine points and that little can 
be attributed to the hosing down 
of walks. 

Another contributor to balky 
machinery has been the lack of 
silver in new coins. 

Kehoe accounted for this by ex- 
plaining how the vending machines 
are calibrated to work at a cer- 
tain weight and that anything of 
a different weight such as slugs 
or possibly new coins, automati- 
cally jam the machines. 

Edwards added that, since the 
government doesn't have a uni- 
form coinage system, that prob- 
ably 80% of the machines* trou- 
bles can be blamed on money. 

When students receive carbon- 
ated water, rather than a soft 
drink, Mr. Lloyd Goss, vending 
manager, explained that the dif- 
ficulty lies in not replenishing the 
machines often enough. It seems 
the owners of the vending ma- 
chines, the Prophet Company, 
might increase their profit by 
checking the machines' needs a 
little more often. 

Stale or spotted candy bars, 
Kehoe explained, are caused by 
the lack of air conditioning in the 
cafeteria's storage room. The 
candy is taken from a refriger- 
ated warehouse and kept in the 
cafeteria's storage room for a 
maximum of two weeks, before 
being placed in the machines, 
which are regulated from a cool 

A remark of Edwards' stating 
that vending machines are a "nec- 
essary evil" is partially rectified 
by the fact that refund centers 
HAVE been set up for lost money, 
and Kehoe is having special decals 
printed which will be placed on 
each vending machine noting the 
nearest center. Besides the cafe- 
teria, the secretary's office in the

The gift-giving season is upon us, and after much d£ 

eration, and thought, I have managed to compile a lht[; 

those gifts the parties below will most likely need or m'} 

or even get. p 

To the Cafeteria — A set of explicit instructions on L; 

to make coffee. J 

To the Drama Dept. — A set of permanent paint brut 
To the Music Dept. — A complete set of Rolling S£ ; 

and Monkee records. }; 

To the Student Body — Paved parking lots (and diQ 

ways?) ;• 

To the Business Dept. - Unbreakable office machine 
To the Beachcomber — Typewriters. {' 

To the Art Dept. — All of the Singing Nun's water coiv 
Now, to be a little more personal ... S 

To Mr. Duncan — A gold, leather-bound volume; 

Christopher Marlowe's plays. f- 

To Mr. McDaniels — One sixty-minute timer. S 

To Mr. Betz - One trip to Puerto Rico (one-way???} j 
To Mr. Leahy — A monogrammed toothbrush. t 

To Dr. Manor — One beard and long hair. > 

To Miss Diedrich — A new supply of aspirin for persa; 

use. | 

To Dr. Bottosto — Nothing, for he has everything. \. 
To Angeiine Albertson — A life-time pass to see Dr. % 

vago so as to see his eyes. "i 

Finally, also -To. the BEACHCOMBER- One large t 

fire into which are to be liberally tossed — the stylebook; 

Whether or not the P.BJ.C. cagers can grab rebounds 
will make the difference in winning or losing the remaining 
games in the Pacer schedule this semester. 

Coach Jim Tanner will have to solve this major problem 
by remedying the causes. Leading rebounder, 6-5 Kent Waters 
fouled out of the Orlando and Florida Keys games early in the 
second halves. Tom Nead, 6-4, and Ric Bradshaw, 6-3, have 
"both turned in impressive rebounding performances, but tend 
to be either "red hot" or "ice cold" offensively. 

Lloyd Dollins, 6-7, starting center, will be sidelined until 
next semester with the broken finger suffered in the Jamaica- 
palm Beach pre-game warm-ups. 

A solution is in sight for Tanner but is not immediately 
available. As soon as the eligibility papers are processed, 6-3 
Bob Dodson and 6-5 Bill Rozinski will don Pacer uniforms. 

By the time the second semester arrives a rejuvenated 
Pacer team shall appear with the addition of high-jumping 6-3 
Seacrest grad Lincoln Thomas and 5-11 transfer Jeff Stover. 

But until then Coach Tanner will have his headaches 

"jelling" the present team. 

* * * 

The richest golf tournament event to be played anywhere 
will be held at the Palm Beach Gardens P.G.A. National Golf 
Club this week. With a $275,000 jackpot, the setting should 
be perfect today for the start of the P.G.A. National Team 
Championship, a four-day affair that ends Saturday afternoon 
under a national television coverage. The one day price for 
student spectators will be $1.00 with I.D. cards, whereas the 

regular price will be $4.00. 

* * * 

The largest crowd ever to attend a home game saw the 
Pacers rout the Florida Keys Friday night. Several modern 
records were set in the contest, among them: most points in one 
game (79), most points in one half (48), and most wins in one 
season (2). These records should be re-established at least 
ten times this season but it's encouraging to know this year's 
Pacers are on the right road. 

Behind the encouragement of the cheerleaders and the 
Pep club and the individual "sign" work of Alpha Pi and Circle 
K, the Pacer fans yelled louder than ever before as a fixed-up 
Palm Beach team took command in the second half.

FORT LAUDERDALE— The Palm Beach Junior College basketball 

team moved into first place in the District V Florida Junior College 
Conference, as the Pacers bombed Broward JC 77-63 for their second 
straight win here, Monday night Shawn McElroy led the PBJC scoring 
parade with 24 points as the Pacers set a school record with a "red hot" 
52 points in the second half. The Pacers are 2-0 in the conference and 
3-1 over all.

Florida Christmas 

by Carole Cole 

As he stood on the beach in the sand 

The tourist showed his face to wear a frown. 
"This is Christinas?" was his command, 

"Well not in my home town!" 
"Where do the sleighbells ring, 

Christmas has shimmering snow and ice. 
Why, this weather seems to be -spring 

The stores are selling Christmas, But NO DICE!" 
I laughed and laughed as I walked on 

and said to myself, "Gee, he's really gone" 
I recalled so long ago 

In Bethlehem they say, 
The very first time the star did show 

And the Christ child slept in the hay. 
There did blow a gentle breeze 

And near the stable door, 
Hibiscus bloomed, so tall were palm trees 

All on a sandy floor. 
So happy are we in the warmth of our sun 

We'll see not ice nor snow, 
Our Christmas festivities are all well done 

As we believe God willed it so. 

Spirit Of Christmas 

The spirit of Christmas is a living, breathing spirit kept 
alive by the faith and love of people throughout the year. 

Christmas has the quality of togetherness— oneness of 
family, friends and distant loved ones. What is in that Christmas 
card that seems to pull the miles so much closer? 

It is full of the same motions that knitted that Christmas 
sweater or hammered that sewing box— sharing, loving and 
togetherness. The want to share happiness and mold from it 
holiday cheer. 

What are the rewards of those hectic weeks spent in 
frantically searching for that perfect gift? For braving the 
bustling crowds, for planning or saving? The answer may be 
found on Christmas morning and on every morning through- 
out the year. 

In the early morning light, that pale spector of a Christmas 
tree may look anything but romantic. But the pattering of 
excited feet and the crackling of wrapping paper brighten 
each little hope, enhance each little word of thanks and praise. 

After the tinsel has withered, the tree has died and the 
Christmas ornaments have been safely packed away, the spirit 
of Christmas still lives. 

Each morning may not be greeted by excited cries or 
merry laughter, but it flickers with the same emotions that 
light each Christmas candle. The day may not glitter and 
shimmer like a yuletide present, but under the brown paper 
wrapping lie the same basic ingredients. 

The same love and the same thought that trimmed the 
Christmas tree or tied the bow on the Christmas package- 
that is the richest reward of the Christmas spirit. 

—Chris Tenne

It Was The Night 
Before Christmas-But 

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the pad 

Not a hipster was swinging, not even old Dad: 

The chimney was draped in that stocking routine, 

In hopes that "The Fat Man" would soon make the scene; 

The wee cats were laid out all cool in their beds, 

While sounds of the "Sugar Blues" wailed through their heads; 

And my chick in her "Castro," and me on the floor, 

Had just conked out cold for a forty-wink snore, 

When out of left field there came on such a ribble, 

I broke from my sack to see what was this dribble! 

To the glasspane Icut like a B-Western movie, 

Tuned in on the action, and Man was it groovy! 

The moon and the snow were, like flaking together, 

Which made the scene rock in the Day People weather 

When, what to these peepers should come on real queer, 

But a real crazy sleigh, and eight swinging reindeer, 

With a hopped-up old driver on some frantic kick, 

I was hip in a flash that it myst be St. Nick. 

Much faster than Bird flew, this group was no drag, 

And he rocked, and rolled, and he pegged them by tag: 

"Like, Dasher! Like, Dancer! Like, Prancer and Vixen! 

Go, Comet! Go, Cupid! Go, Donder and Blitzen! 

Fly over the shack. Make it over the pad! 

Now cut out, Man! Cut out, Man! Cut out- like mad! 

As sidemen in combos pick up as they stomp, 

When they swing with the beat of a Dixieland Romp! 

So up to the top of my bandstand they flew, 

With the sleighful of loot, and St. Nicholas, too. 

And then, in a quick riff, I dug on the roof. 

The jumpin' and jivin" of each swinging hoof. 

As I pulled in my noggin, and turned around fast, 

Down the chimney came Nick like a hot trumpet blast. 

He was wrapped up to kill, Man, a real kookie dresser! 

And his rags were, like, way out! Pops, he was a gasser! 

A sack full of goodies hung down to his tail, 

And he looked like a postman with "Basie's" fan mail 

His lids— Man, they sizzled. His dimples were smiles! 

His cheeks were like "Dizzy's" his head was like "Miles." 

His puckered-up mouth was, like, blowing flat E, 

And his chin hid behind a real crazy goatee! 

The tip of a 'butt he had snagged in his choppers, 

And he took a few drags just like all cool Be-boppers; 

He had a weird face, and a solid reet middle 

That bounced when he cracked, like a gutbucket fiddle! 

He was shaking with meat, meaning he was no square, 

And I flipped, cause I'd always thought he was longhair. 

But the glint in his eye and the beat in his touch 

Soon gave me the message this cat was too much 

He blew not a sound, but skipped right to his gig, 

And stashed all the stockings, then came on real big, 

And flashing a sign, like that old "Schnozzle" bit, 

And playing it hip, up the chimney he split; 

He flew to his skids, to his group blew a lick, 

And they cut out real cool, on a wild frenzied kick. 

But I heard him sound off, with a razz-a-ma-tazz; 

"A cool Christmas to all, and like, all of that jazz!"

The Little Angels 
Appear On Tuesda 

it Night Assembly 

THE LITTLE ANGELS, Korean folk dance 
company, perform here at 8:00 p.m., Tues- 

From 4584 To 4268 

day, January 17, in the Palm Beach Junior 
College Auditorium. 

Winter Term Enrollment Drops 

Unofficial figures for last week's 
registration show an overall drop 
of nearly 300 students. A total of 
4,268 are enrolled for the term, 
including 2,758 day students and 
1,510 evening students. 

The drop "of 300 from the fall 
term total of 4,584, is found mainly 
in the day enrollment, as 3,062 day 
students attended classes last 
tarm. The evening enrollment re- 
mained virtually the same. 

One of the reasons for the eve- 
ning enrollment remaining the 
same, is the fact that the evening 
course offerings were published in 
local newspapers for the first 
time. Articles describing several 
new evening courses were also 
carried by local publications. 

Many classes usually available 
were closed out early in the week. 
An evening course in tailoring, of- 
fered this term for the first time, 

closed out early and had a wait 
ing list large enough to more than 
double the present class. 

The Little Angels, Korean folk 
dance company, appear in the 
Auditorium, Tuesday, January 17, 
at 8:00 p.m. 

Twenty-six Korean girls, rang- 
ing in age from 9 to 12, are to 
dance exotic Oriental numbers 
with the accompaniment of musi- 
cians in authentic costume. 

The dancers were selected on 
the basis of a series of nationwide 
contests. For the past four years, 
the girls have trained under the 
direction of Mr. Sung Ok Park, 
Korea's foremost choreographer, 
who is also an authority on Court 
music, and Miss Soon Shim Shin, 
one of Korea's most celebrated 
and distinguished dancers. 

The musical accompaniment is 
to be played by seven faculty 
members of the Korean National 
Court Music Academy of Seoul. 
These musicians play more than 
50 native instruments. 

An English-speaking narrator, 
Mr. Thomas Park, 15, supplies the 
historic background and explana- 

tory comments whenever appro- 
priate or necessary. 

Students and faculty may pick 
up free reserved seat tickets in 
the Humanities Building, Room 3. 
Programs are also set for Mon- 
day, January 30; Friday, Febru- 
ary 17 and Wednesday, March 1. 
Ruth Slencynska, child prodigy 
at ten, will present a concert on 
January 30 at 10:30 a.m. She has 
toured Europe, South America, 
South Africa, the Far East, and 
the United States extensively. 

The Clebanoff Strings and Or- 
chestra performs February 17 at 
10:30 a.m. Information regarding 
their program will be available in 
the near future. 

Lawrence Spivak will present a 
reversed Meet the Press, or a 
straight lecture on newsworthy 
national and international events 
of the day on March 1, at 8:1»! 
p.m. Mr. Spivak is a permanent 
panelist and producer of Meet the 

Try outs For 'Crucible' 
Monday, Wednesday 
For Twenty-One Roles 

Tryouts for "The Crucible" have 
been scheduled for 7:30 p.m., next 
Monday and Wednesday, January 
16 and 18, in the Auditorium. 

"The Crucible," considered by 
critics as one of the best plays 
written by Arthur Miller, is a 
story of mass hysteria in the 
1800's witchhunt. It features an 
almost equally divided cast of 
eleven men and ten women. 

Several copies of "The Crucible" 
are available to interested stu- 
dents in the reserve section of the 
library. Audition scripts will be 
available at the auditions. 

All . students currently enrolled 
are eligible to participate in this 
drama production, the third of the 
•afeason and first of the winter- 

"The Crucible" is to be pre- 
sented here March 1 through 4. 

Rush Commences 
Next Monday 

Students interested in joining 
any of the six social clubs on 
campus may sign up for winter 
term rush any day next week in 
the SAC Lounge. 

A fee. of $2.00 is charged to 
cover the activities conducted dur- 
ing rush by the organizations in- 

A Tea and Smoker, to be held 
on Friday night, January 20, be- 
gins two weeks of informal rush, 
ending with the bid dance of 
February 3. 

Cheerleader Captain Carole Cole prompts 
the other cheerleaders at last Friday's home 
game against St. Petersburg Junior College. 

The Pacers play a home game with Edison 
Junior College this Friday night at 8;00 p.m., 
in the gym. Admission is free to Palm Beach 
Junior College students, 

Page 2 Jarmary II, 1967 


Pep Club Pooped? 

The main purpose of the pep club' is to promote interest 
in the intercollegiate athletic program here. One way of 
accomplishing this is by encouraging students to attend the 
different athletic events-basketball games in particular. 

The Pacers played two home games last weekend, and 
if you knew about them it wasn't because of the pep club. 

The entire student body was on campus last week for 
legistration and several posters placed near the waiting lines 
would have informed the students of the games. 

Friday night's game was against the St. Petersburg Junior 
College Trojans. Last month the pep club purchased several 
hundred ribbons saying "Stomp Trojans." The passengers on 
the SGA sponsored bus that traveled to St. Petersburg for 
the first meeting of the two teams were given the ribbons. 

Distributing the remaining ribbons through the registra- 
tion lines would have promoted the sparcely attended games. 

With a little effort and a little caring the pep club could 
greatly increase the attendance at home games

Pacer's Pride 




MARSHA CARRIER, first Pacer's Pride; and a 
comely addition to PBJC she is. Listing golf as a major 
interest, Marsha proved her capabilities when she cap- 
tured the Women's Intramural Golf Championship 

She attended Cocoa High School before gracing 
the halls of PBJC, where she is a member of Thi Del 
social club and a dental hygiene major. Sound inter- 
esting? Marsha has her 20th birthday later this month.

The Ravin' (Student) I

Feature Editor : 

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I wandered weak and weary, i 
Through the sand spurs, cold and sore— [ 

While I staggered nearly stumbling, suddenly there came a mumbL-,' 
As of someone gently grumbling at the registration door. \ 

" Tis but a janitor," I muttered, "grumbling at the registration door'-f 
Only this and nothing more. f 

Thus I stood engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing 1 

Thoughts of dreadful things that I deplore. ( 

Decent folks it should be said, belonged at home tucked in bed. f 
Who or what I asked my senses, could such resemblance be bore)' 
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore. i 

" 'Tis the wind and nothing more." 


Onward through the halls of learning, all my soul within me burni^ 
Soon again I heard a grumbling somewhat louder than before. 
Other students here already? Such a thought I felt absurd! 
For who would venture out so early on this midnight hour before Jc' 
uary third? * 

Desiring admittance at the door, made my hopes begin to spar- \ 
"I must be first. Only me and no one more> 

Presently my soul grew stronger, hesitating then no longer, f 

"Sir," said I, "or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore; 

But the fact is I was stumbling, and so gently heard you mumblirf 

Yes, so faintly heard you grumbling, grumbling at the registration doc." 

That I scarce was sure I heard you"— 

Here I stared right at the door— i 

Darkness there and nothing more. f 

) I 

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearirj 
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared dream before. "' 
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token ^ 

And the sound remained unspoken at the registration door. i 

My echoes were alone repeated at the registration door. I 

Merely this and nothing more. f 

Suddenly there came a light; then I beheld a dreadful sight. I 

Adjusting these poor eyes of mine, revealed an endlesls registration fe l 
Yes, never had I been so cert— [ 

That JC registration bit the dirt! J 

Students were packed from ceiling to floor, » 

With hearts set on entering the registration door. [

The Pacers lost two more games 
last week, but seemed to come to 
life as a team in their second 

The first loss came at the hands 
of St. Petersburg Junior College 
Friday night by the score of 87-77. 

Palm Beach had a slow start 
and trailed by 10 points at half 

The team then picked up the 
pace and kept even with St. Pete 
but could not overcome the first 
half lead. 

Saturday's game against na- 
tionally ranked St. Johns was 
completely different, Although the 
team lost 88-83 they looked as if 
they gained unity tha.t was miss- 
ing before. 

The Pacers, led by Shawn Mc- 
EIroy, played equally against a 
team that was supposed to be 
vastly superior. 

"We played as well as they did," 
declared coach Jim Tanner. 

And the Pacers definitely did. 
The score changed or tied 19 
times during the game. 

The team stopped St. Johns' 
fast break and made them play 
our kind of game. 

McEIroy, with 28 points, con- 
tinually hit clutch baskets that 
kept the Pacers coming back. Jeff

Stover's good ball handling and 
his 15 points also contributed to 
the good showing. 

Rick Bradshaw hit eight of his 
10 points in the first half to keep 
the Pacers always in reach. 

St. Johns pulled away by 12 
points midway in the second half 
but the Pacers scored eight 
straight baskets in the closing 
minutes to almost pull the game 
out of the fire.

Saturday night. But it won't be

SGA Dance 
Friday Night 

The Student Government As- 
sociation is sponsoring a dance 
from 10 p.m. until midnight in 
the SAC Lounge Friday night 
after the home basketball game 
with Edison JC. 

Two bands will play for the 
dance according to Bill Sed- 
mack, chairman of SGA Social 

St. Johns' guard Marshall Brad- 
ley said that he was amazed that 
the shorter Pacers were able to 
keep in the game as well as they 
did. He was especially suiprised 
at the way the team was able to 
stop the big men. 

Jim Tanner has had his prob- 
lems this year. 

The team lost Kent Waters and 
Tom Nead because of academic 
problems. Lincoln Thomas who 
was counted on for second se- 
mester action did not make the 
grade either. 

The only new face is Jeff Stover, 
a 5' 11" guard who coach Tanner 
says will be used a lot. 

The loss Friday night to St. 
Petersburg was not representative 
of our team's ability as was shown 
on Saturday against St. Johns. 

Coach Tanner had to reassem- 
ble a new team after the Christ- 
mas holidays with only one weeks

Trimester To Remain 

by Jon Miller 
Associate Editor 

Palm Beach Junior College is retain- 
ing its present calendar year. 

"We plan to wait and see," says Dr. 
Harold C. Manor of PBJC's involvement 
with the quarter system. 

Manor, president of PBJC, stated 
that the college will objectively view 
and evaluate the state university's adop- 
tion of the quarter system, and then act 
accordingly if there is the need to do so. 

The quarter system, a method in 
which the school year is split into four 
sessions of 15 weeks each, has come 

under attack from students, parents, and 

Under fire are the beliefs that the 
new system will not improve the situa- 
tion; the change was politically moti- 
vated; the announcement that tuitions 
will increase. 

Students wondering if there will be 
calendar conflicts and transferring con- 
flicts apparently have little to worry 

Manor related that he thought there 
would be little trouble with students 
transferring to the upper level universi- 
ties that adopt the quarter system. 

"As far as we can tell, our calendar 

will be compatible with that of the state 
universities'," said Manor, adding, "and 
most universities evaluate and credit 
transfer students with equivalent hours." 

At this time, it is felt that two terms 
of 17 weeks and two six-weeks summer 
terms better serve the area student, 
principally because the graduating high 
school student has an opportunity to 
start school upon his graduation, 

Manor emphasized that, although 
PBJC is not presently adopting the 
quarter system, should circumstances 
arise making it unfeasible not to change, 
then the college would alter its calendar 
to one in accordance. 

IT'S EARLY IN THE DAY for these registering students-they're £ t 
smiling. An innovation to registration was a game called "moving choirs 'i 

Registration lines, an air-conditioned cafe- 
teria, registration lines, a newly-paved parking 
area, registration lines and more lines . . . "one 
more of these little stations and I'll scream," 
one student was overheard. At any rate, it was 
a week of nerves ("LC 101-01 just closed!"), 
rush (construction completion dates), and relief 
("I'm through, I'm through!"). It was, however, 
very, very . . . 


worked to complete installation of an air-condi- 
eria. As for the band-aids~we heartily approve 
is jobs.

The dance is the result of a joint

Entertainment Assured 

The announcement by Senator Bill Sedmak that the dates 
of Spring Frolics have been selected, and negotiations with 
the two entertainment groups are being completed assures 
us that at least one committee of the Senate is progressing with 
a significant degree of success. 

The social committee selected the dates for the annual 
event on the basis of the availability of entertainment groups 
and previously scheduled events. The social committee's part 
m planning Spring Frolics is completed with the exception of 
minor details; the success of the remaining aspects of Frolics 
rests entirely upon the efforts of the Senate to unite campus 
interest groups. 

Senate President Sherry Kallionen must take some action 
on Spring Frolics soon or the clubs on campus will he lost as 
to their part in the affair. We would suggest that President 
Kallionen appoint one committee to direct all aspects of Spring 
Frolics instead, of several non-coordinated committees. 

Perhaps the Senate should investigate the possibility of 
incorporating a theme into the Saturday afternoon portion of 
Frolics. These activities always seem to drag, and with a little 
effort the Senate could enhance the popularity of the after- 
noon program. 

If the Senate will accepl; the planning of Spring Frolics 
as a challenge, with the attitude of improving on last year's 
-uccess, they can make the 1967 Frolics the best ever. 

lore Incentive Needed 

The upcoming "Club Night" on February 3 is an attempt 
the athletic department to increase the attendance at home 
ames, but clubs need more incentive to attend than simply 
/ecognition at halftime for the event to be successful. 

Competition among the clubs is the key to drawing 
crowds. If the athletic department would mark the bleachers 
off into sections for each organization and then offer an award 
to the club with the largest percentage of their membership 
in attendance for the season, the organizations would show 
more interest in Pacer athletics. 

If the athletic department feels there is merit in our sug- 
gestion we wiH gladly assist them. We believe that "Club 
Night" as it stands now will be attended only by the few who 
regularly attend the home games.

Dean Allison Visits Europe; 
Moscow Highlight Of Trip 


by Gayle McElroy 
Feature Editor 

What was once a 12th century 
fortress and is presently the fifth 
largest city in the world, proved 
to be the highlight of Dean Paul 
W. Allison's European tour, No- 
vember 2-28. 

Moscow, the heart of the Com- 
munist world, exposed many in- 
triguing and unusual places Rank- 
ing high on his list were the 
Kremlin (including the Palace of 
Congresses and several museums), 
the Bolshoi Ballet, Lenin's tomb, 
the G.U.M , the State Department 
Store. Before the Revolution, 
G.U.M. was the center of Mos- 
cow's retail trade and now some 
200,000 people visit it daily. 

An interesting fact disclosed by 
Dean Allison was the too-perfect 
preservation of Lenin's body. It 
became the general c6nsensus of 
the 80 members of the, tour that 
the body was a wax figure. This 
was, of course, denied by their 
Russian guide who 1 accounted for 
the perfect preservation hy. saying 
the body was occasionally re- 
embalmed, a feat which Dean Alli- 
son stated was impossible. 

The Dean of .Special Studies 
went on to add that they did see 
a great deal, but they felt that 
certain things were kept from 
them. He explained this by using 
the University of Moscow as an 

It seems a member of the tour 
who was interested in viewing the 
laboratories and trying to work 
his way around the 'hem-hawing' 
of the University's vice-president, 
found himself rapidly escorted to 
the first floor to jom the rest of 
the group. 

The University of Moscow, the 
Dean added, has excellent librar- 
ies, and more than likely, excel- 
lent laboratories. The University, 
with 90% of its students on schol- 
arships, specializes in all branches 
of science. Since the majority of 
students make investments in col- 
lege, the state pays doctors and 
lawyers the same amount as day 
laborers. The education of a Rus- 
sion doctor, 80% of which are 
women, is the equivalent of one 
and a half years of training in 
the U.S. 

Educationally, Dean Allison 
elaborated, France and the Iron 
Curtain countries are aJJ attempt- 
ing to increase the number of 
years of common education for all 
youngsters. Presently children are 
forced to stay in school until 10 
years of age, but they are work- 
ing to raise it to 12. 

Another first for the Dean's 
tour was that for the first time 
in 20 years Moscow airport was 

fogged in. Dean Allison was fr' 
to sit for two days waillnji 
stench-filled-room for fog to u 
When asked about the twii 
commented that he got quite t' 
of cold chicken, canned peau 
cold pickles. 

The tour, sponsored by thed 
parative Education Society,' 
tional School Board Assoclc 
and Thi Delta Kappa, I wis 
stops in Paris, Copenhagen, I 
Berlin, East Berlin, Czechosltmr. 
and Rumania. Its purpose wt 
compare the education behiai 
Iron Curtain. t 

So tar, Dean Allison has r' 
lectures to the student peuo:' 
guidance group and to the M. 
Club at the Congregational Ot" 
in Lake Worth. A later lech* 
being planned for interested f 
dents and faculty in the Aui 
ium, where the Dean will r 
his delight in returning anj| 
future plans "to spend any t 
abroad in free countries." > 



Media Deadline 
JuRimry 31 

MEDIA, PBJC's literary maga- 
zine, is accepting material for 
publication until January 31. 

Students may submit their short 
stories, short plays, essays, poems, 
to Mr. Graham in AD 19. 

The contributions printed in the 
spring represent the best literary 
work done by students. 

The Pacers head into Ft. Pierce tonight to entertain 
Indian River Junior College. The cagers currently hold a 
3-10 record, and are well ahead of last year's disastrous season. 
The roundball squad has been bolstered by the addition of 
5'9" guard Jeff Stover and the hot-shooting of Shawn McElroy. 
Last year's unit lost twice to Indian River, and this year face 
a greater threat from high-scoring Bob Snyder, who averages 
30 points a game for the Pioneers. Game time for the contest 
is 8:00 p.m. 

* * * 

Coach Tanner is still having his troubles keeping his play- 
ers eligible for an entire season. Cagers Tom Nead, Ken 
Waters and Lincoln Thomas are ineligible, and serve no use 
to the squad in street clothes. Even so, Coach Tanner is con- 
tinuing to "teach" the Pacer ball hawks how to shoot, pass and 
rebound in the game of basketball. Several players have re- 
sounded with amazing quickness, but others still have a long 
-way to go. 

* * * 

All hope is not lost, students, for PBJC still has 11 more 
games. So in the meantime, would students keep down the 
ehant "State's our Fate." .•. . Attendance at Pacer games also 
has skyrocketed to a record high, as less than 50 people were 
at the St. John's game. Basketball players do tend to get 
nervous and excited in front of such huge turnouts. Surely then, 
a few more students will be just what the cagers need to keep 
them on their toes. Our next home game is with the Orlando 
Highlanders. If history repeats itself, Coach Tanner's cagers 
are in for another packed house of screaming Pacer fans, led 
"by the Peep . . . ooopsl Pep club. Noise also has presented 
a problem at games, since the cheerleaders have complained 
about not being able to hear their cheers. The only remedy this 
writer can suggest is that the , cheerleaders ask the "spirited" 
student body to be a little less boisterous as they yell their 
cheers. Well, it could work! 

* it * 

I wonder how many people noticed at the last game what 
a "shot in the arm" hot-handed Charley Wright was. The 
sophomore guard continuously pumped in 30-foot one-handers. 
It seems quite unusual to the BOX SCORE that such a basket- 
ball talent should be left on the bench to gain splinters. After 
all, the object of the game is to make baskets, not wear out 
seats of basketball uniforms . . . 

* * * 

Students interested in playing varsity baseball this season 
must attend a meeting at 3:30 this afternoon in room PE-5 in 
the Gym. 

Anyone who cannot attend this meeting should see Coach 

* * * 

An organizational meeting for Women's varsity golf and 
tennis will be held tomorrow at 3:30 in Room 5 of the gym. 

Any woman student interested should be at this meeting 
or see Miss Mclntyre. 

A schedule of matches will be distributed at this meeting. 

* * * 

Applications for positions on the Intramural and Recrea- 
tional Board are due in Gym office 4-L at noon today. 

* * * 

Well, fans, this ends the first B(-»X SCORE. So until 
we meet again in print, just remember: "Look for the Box, 
and you will find the Score."

Edison Junior College won a sur- 
prisingly easy victory over the 
Pacers last Friday night, 81-67 in 
the losers' gym. 

Pacer forward Shawn McElroy' s 
27 point output was to no avail as 
the taller and talented Buccaneers 
continuously pulled away from 
Palm Beach with 10 point margins. 

At half-time the Pacers were 
down by only one basket; but in 
the second half Edison poured it 
on and outscored Palm Beach 
37-24. Edison had four players 
hit in double figures and com- 
pletely dominated the backboards. 
High man again for the Pacer 
Cagers was former Seacrest star, 
Shawn McElroy with 27 points, 
while Ric Bradshaw notched 11 
markers and Steve McDonald 
threw in 10. The loss leaves PBJC 
with a 3-10 record for the season. 

The Cagers face Indian River

The Palm Beach Junior College 
Advisory Board met last Friday 
and formed their recommendation 
to the school board concerning the 
proposed name change for the 

The action of the advisory board 
was based upon a request by Rob- 
ert R. Johnson, vice-chairman of 
the Board of Public Instruction, 
that the school board conduct a 
survey to determine whether Palm 
Beach Junior College should be 
re-named "Palm Beach Commu- 
nity College." 

The school board authorized the 
study and then turned the matter 
over to the advisory board. 

The board's recommendation 

was sent to Superintendent of Pub- 
lic Instruction, Robert W. Fulton, 
and at press time it was not known 
if the advisory board's decision 
would be announced before the 
next regular school board meeting 
on February 8. 

Johnson contacted Dr Harold C. 
Manor, college president, before 
making the request at January 
17's school board meeting and 
learned that Manor did not favor 
changing the name of the college. 

Manor stated several reasons 

why he favored the name remain- 
ing the same. 

"After 33 years enough people 
have gone through Palm Beach 
Junior College so that no matter 
what the name is people will re- 
member the college as it is," he

He added that the national repu- 
tation of the college that has de- 
veloped over the years would 
suffer seriously. 

Some question arose as to 
whether or not it was legal to 
take the word 'junior' from the 
name of a Florida public junior 

In the State School Board Regu- 
lations under the duties and pow- 
ers of the state junior college 
board, item 14 says that the 
board shall 'approve ftie name or 
change in name of any junior col- 
lege.' 'State junior colleges' are 
referred to continually throughout 
the regulations.

Cast Chosen For Production 
Of The Crucible' In March 


by Raul Ramirez 
News Editor 

Twenty one students, eleven men 
and twelve women, have been 
selected to participate in the 
March 2, 3, and 4 College Players 
presentation of "The Crucible." 

The Shadows 
To Perform 

Here Friday 

The Nation-Rocking Shadows 
from Leesburg are playing at a 
joint PBJC-Marymount College 
dance this Friday night, from 8:00 
p.m. until midnight in the SAC 

Admission is free to PBJC stu- 
dents and dates for the SGA spon- 
sored event; dress is semi-sport. 

The dance is the result of a 
joint venture by the two colleges 
to bring more big-name entertain- 
ment on campus by combining 
efforts and budgets. 

The dance is the first of several 
sponsored by the Student Govern- 
ment Association. Bands for the 
dances are procured by the Senate 
social committee. 

Pam Makey is to portray Abigail 
Williams, the sexy, dissassemb- 
ling, beautiful, antagonistic lover 
of John Proctor, characterized by 
Ronnie Gies and who is caught 
between Abigail and his wife, cold 
Elizabeth, impersonated by Mar- 
tha Weldon. 

Portraying Reverend Samuel 
Parris, who thinks everyone is 
out to ruin him, is John Murphy. 
Another preacher, Reverend John 
Hale, who knows 'all about 
witches,' is casted by Burt Mer- 

Other students chosen to the 
cast of "The Crucible" are Karen 
Koudelik, who is to portray Betty, 
Reverend Parris' wife, Kay Fel- 
der, Wendy Dennison, Karen Spad- 
acene, Leroy Barker, Laurie 
Clark, Pat Britton, and Janet 

Other cast members are Gerald 
Matthews, Leu Steenken, Buddy 
Robson, Andy Pinkney, Bob Holley, 
Geof Binney, Widge Blount, and 
Dale Auglund. 

Possessor of a strong contemp- 
orary meaning, "The Crucible" is 
a story of mass hysteria in the 
1600's witch-hunt, and has been 
described by a critic as "the trag- 
edy of man's own stupidity." It is 
considered one of Arthur Miller's 

best plays. . 

The production is directed by 
Fred Coggin and assistant direc- 
tors Sarah Blair, Terryi Beaver 
and George Randolph. 

Celebrated pianist, Miss Ruth 
Slenczynska, presents a concert at 
10:30 a.m. Monday, January 30, in 
the Auditorium Included in the 
program are selections from Liszt, 
Chopin, DeBussy and Teleman. 

At the age of four, Miss Slen- 
sczynska gave her first recital 
after only II months of playing 
the piano, earning the name "the 
greatest child prodigy of the 20th

Weekday Warrior 

The day is the 19th of January and Miss Marian McNeely, 
PBJC's "Weekday Warrior," has just finished casing the SAC 

Horrors! Of all dastardly deeds imaginable, someone, 
singly or not, has filched a number of ashtrays; or has the 
'Splendid Sluth" simply miscounted? 

Could she have? Is this at all possible? Once again — 
"One, two, three .. . seven, eight"— 

Nosireebob! The riled "Regal Robin" has discovered that 
only eight (yes, only eight) of 30 ashtrays donated by Dr. 
Rudd are still present in the SAC Lounge. 

So concludes an episode in the life of that fantastic 
"Feathered Fouler." Take heed students, she may be back. 

In so many words, kids . . . grow up! 

Ivy-Covered PBGC? 

The proposal by School Board vice-chairman, Robert 
Johnson, to investigate the possibilities of renaming Palm 
Beach Junior College to Palm Beach Community College 
causes us to wonder if Mr. Johnson researched his proposal 
before introducing it. 

One of his reasons for suggesting the name change is the 
act that because of the college's specialized business, profes- 
mal, and technological courses the name 'junior' college is 
isleading. On the contrary, the majority of the course offer- 
gs at the college are on the university parallel level and the 
tme 'community' college would lead many prospective stu- 
ents to believe that PBJC is a four year college. 

The name community' college would label PBJC as a 
small ivy-covered, three or four building college controlled 
by the city fathers and offering courses in basketweaving, knit- 
ting, and other such trivia, to keep the townspeople occupied 
ia their idle time. 

Palm Beach Junior College is the oldest public junior 
college in Florida, and possesses a national reputation that is 
matched by few. PBJC is well known in national competitive 
circles (top awards have been won by the forensics program 
and the Beachcomber) and the name Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege is highly respected by national educators. 

A name change would destroy an outstanding reputation 
tediously constructed over the years by the students, faculty, 
and administrators, past and present, of Palm Beach Junior 

Johnson should seriously reconsider his proposal to re- 
name Palm Beach Junior College. We think it is a proposal 
made with little forethought and would be of no conceivable 
service to the college, or those who benefit from its presence.

Looks like there'll be a substantial influx of male

Dear Editor: 

Word on campus has it c' 
Senate President Sherry Kalli:^* 
and sophomore senator Burt't 
kins are starting their own cr 
using the SGA as the main ac- 
tion. Recently I attended a & 
ing to see if this was valid r 
foand that every word was tr 
with the proceedings looking r 
like a side show than a go.t 
mental procedure. At times I f 
that mass chaos would break' 
with the lack of control t 
voiced opinions by Sherry U 
oinen making discussions of b. 
ness almost impossible. 

Constant outbursts by Burt I 
kins put the icing on the cake i 
I could see that many sew ' 
were perturbed with the situat- 
Myself, just being a visitor, h: 
this even more perplexing, t 
having had training in selk: 

It is a shame that order civ 
be kept and the meetings r 
smoothly since the senate tvf 
sents the student body. Senate 
visors are at a loss as to ho* 
handle the chronic outburst \ 
Senator Wilkins and the Jack * 
leadership shown by Senate rV 
ident Kallioinen. It seems thatf 
tion should be taken against t' 
dynamic duo but I am at a l' 
as to who would handle iKi t " 

If the students would at:;, 
these meetings, which "progte 
every Thursday at 11:00, fr 
would find an interesting corcj*'

An eleven-game losing streak 
was broken Monday night as 
Shawn McElroy picked up a sag- 
ging Pacer five in the second half 
to defeat Orlando 71-69. 

Palm Beach led at halftime 37- 
32, but Orlando came back in the 
third period with eight straight 
.points and the Pacers trailed by 
three, as they suddenly went cold. 

McElroy, who only scored three 
points in the first half, went on. 
a nine minute scoring spree in 
which he scored 15 straight points. 

Palm Beach went ahead for 
good on a layup by Rick Brad- 

shaw with four minutes to go. 
Lloyd Dollins blocked what seem- 
ed to be an easy tap-in as the 
buzzer sounded to save the game. 

The Pacers out played Orlando 
in every phase of the game. They 
out rebounded the taller Highland- 
ers 45-41 with Bradshaw and Tom 
McLaren getting nine and eight 

Charlie Wright scored 10 points 
in the first half to keep the Pacers 

Palm Beach now has a 4-12 over- 
all record. 

The Pacers' next contest is to- 
morrow night against Miami-Dade 
North here at the college.

Last week I had the pleasure of talking to Pacer basketball coach 
Jim Tanner. The purpose of my visit to the eager coach was to ask 
about the 12 scholarships allocated to boys who play basketball for 
PBJC. It came to the attention of the Box Score that most o! these 
scholarships go to local talent (meaning area high school grads). 

My suggestion to Coach Tanner was, why not try out-of-state re- 
cruiting. He answered me by saying, "I would definitely like to recruit 
out-of-state talent from Kentucky, Ohio and other basketball capitals. 
The main reason I cannot is that our college athletic program offers 
no rooming facilities or training table setup for the incoming athletes." 

Coach Tanner also pointed out the total scholarship comes to $250, 
and when the out-of-state tuition is tallied, the athlete is left with many 
expenses to be paid out of his own pocket. This is one facet of our 
program that Coach Tanner feels hinders the squad in producing a 
winning team. 

I intervened and mentioned the idea of recruiting in the state, but 
trying the northern and southern parts. Coach Tanner admitted he 
had already contacted several boys from the Tampa area, but had lost 
out to the bigger universities in the state. 

I then questioned the Pacer coach on whether or not he felt an 
assistant basketball coach was needed. His answer was a definite 'Yes." 
Tanner feels an assistant would be a big factor in helping him coach 
the Pacer five. Why hasn't an assistant coach been selected? Simply 
because the financial part of being an assistant coach isn't very 

I asked Coach Tanner why the cagers haven't fulfilled their billed 
expectations. He cited many instances, but basically ineligibility and 
injuries have consistently hurt the Pacers this year. I agreed with 
Tanner on this viewpoint, ' but actually the Box Score feels lack of 
experience has hampered the roundballers the most this season. Also, 
the absence of a strong center and capable ball handlers hasn't helped 
the situation. 

Naturally a remedy is needed for this problem. The only answer 
the Box Score can give is to Initiate a stronger recruiting program 
with less emphasis on quantity and more on the quality of the indi- 
vidual. Only then will PBJC field a competitive basketball team capable 
of winning more than their share of games.

Pacer Peppers Pooped?

Sponsor Recommend! 

The Pacer Pep Club, whose 
constitution incorporates the cheer- 
leading squad, has been recom- 
mended for disbandment. 

Mrs. Eleanor Britten, sponsor 
of the Pep Club, stated that her 
action was necessary when no offi- 
cers of the club were present for 
a recent meeting. 

Since the cheerleaders are part 
of the club, Mrs. Britten also 
placed the squad on suspension, 
thus not permitting them to cheer 
until the situation is cleared. 

For the present, the situation 
has cleared, at least for the cheer- 

Two of the members of the 
squad met with Dr. Harold Manor, 
president of PBJC, late last week 
to discuss the possibilities of cheer- 
ing at Monday's game (the 23rd).

The Student Senate for the second straight week drafted 
a resolution lambasting Palm Beach County school officials. 

In their meeting on Thursday, representatives of the Student 
Government leveled a scorching: 

two-pronged attack protesting the 
elimination of psychological test- 
ing in secondary schools, and the 
removal of posters plugging a ben- 
efit performance by nationally- 
known folk singer, Pete Seeger. 

Early Thursday morning, five 
concerned students circulated a 
petition protesting the role of the 
John Birch Society in influencing 
school officials. 

The five collected 150 names in 
forty-five minutes. 

When presented with the peti- 
tion, Senator Burt Wilkins drafted 
the resolution for consideration by 
the Student Government. 

The section of the resolution 
dealing with the psychological test- 
ing was passed on a roll call vote 
7-5, with seven abstentions. 

The resolution stated that the 

John Birch Society had exerted 
"unwarranted political inter- 
ference" on school officials that 
amounted to an "attack on the 
capabilities of the county school 

The section of the resolution con- 
cerning the poster incident passed 
overwhelmingly 17-1, with two ab- 

Seeger's "rights under the U. S. 
Constitution were restricted" ac- 
cording to the document and it 
further stated that the singer was 
being "publicly condemned with- 
out a trial." 

The student petition claimed 

that school officials had acted 
hastily and urged officials in the 
future to resist programs proposed 
by "extreme pressure groups, 
either left or right." 

The incident that caused tne 
petitioners to act occurred Tues- 
day, January 24. 

Several of the Seeger posters, 
which had received the stamp of 
approval by Dean of Student Per- 
sonnel Paul Glynn, were placed 
about campus. They advertised the 
benefit performance by the folk 
singer to raise funds for the First 
Unitarian Church in West Palm 
Beach, where he was to appear.

Senate Prexy Offers 
To Prevent Spring 

Frolics 'Gambling' 

Any game of skill, chance, or 
endurance in which the partici- 
pant receives a prize or reward 
is gambling. 

Such is the definition handed 
down by the state legislature and 
clarified by Marvin Mounts, coun- 
ty solicitor. 

Thus, a change in the Spring 
Frolics will be evidenced this year 
when PBJC clubs and organiza- 
tions open their booths and pre- 
pare their activities. t 

Senate president, Sherry Kalli- 
oinen, introduced new concepts for 
the daytime activities of the an- 
nual affair. 

Events that Miss Kallioinen has 
proposed are: chariot races, suit- 
case races, obstacle course, gunny 
sack races, cage ball contests, 
three-legged races, or a fortune- 
telling booth. 

Completely original for PBJC is 
the possible innovation of an an- 
nual "skit night" with members 
of various clubs presenting their 
"acting" abilities. 

The Senate president said that 
all clubs wishing to participate in 
Spring Frolics '67 must have a 
representative of their club attend 
an organizational meeting Thurs- 

day, February 9, at 1:20 p.m. in 
the Senate Office in the SAC 

"All clubs will be designated an 
area for booths and activities and 
are strongly urged to send a mem- 
ber to this meeting," said Miss

tunity to show your stuff in this 

incredibly difficult sport. Long 
absent from the American scene, 
tricycle racing is rapidly sweeping 
the country affording YOU a 
chance to sign up and pay your 
$1.00 entry fee in the Beachcomber 
Office starting today. 

Mrs. Leota Lockman, who has 
been identified by other news 
media as a local member of the 
JBS, called the office of School 
Superintendent Robert W. Fulton 
and demanded that the signs be 
removed. Mrs. Lockman allegedly 
said that Seeger was a confessed 

A school official then called and 
told Dr. Harold C. Manor, Presi- 
dent of PBJC, to have the signs 

Earlier in the week, Mrs. Lock- 
man was influential in having psy- 
chological tests banned by the 
school board. 

Education experts from the 
county schools and FAU cried that 
the removal was a hinderance to 
education, but the pressure group 
allegedly said that the tests were 
a violation of students' rights. 

The Student Senate of PBJC, by 
their vote, indicating the thoughts 
of the campus as a whole, disap- 
proved of both actions, and want 
no outside pressure groups, either 
left or right wing, influencing the 
representatives of the people and 
students of Palm Beach County. 
Adding to the mounting protest 
against the psychological testing 
blackout is Dr. Louie T. Camp, an 
FAU professor who stated that the 
testing was an integral part of 
quality education. 

Gilbert Colquitt, spokesman for 
the petitioners, expressed to this 
reporter that the petition did not 
indicate that he favored Seeger. 
"It was the principle of the 
thing," said Colquitt. 

The Beachcomber contacted the 
FBI in an attempt to find out if 
Seeger was a Communist or a 
member of a subversive organi- 
zation, but received a "no

Political science instructor C. 
Errol Hicks made classroom tech- 
niques a reality last week when, 
with the assistance of local attor- 
ney, James M. Adams, he pre- 
sented to the Federal District 
Court in Miami a plan for reappor- 
tioning the Florida Legislature. 

The proposal, calling for a 49- 
senator, 97-representative setup, 
is stated by Hicks to be "mathe- 
matically superior to the plan pre- 
sented by the Legislature." 

Through Palm Beach, Martm, 
and Hendry Counties sharing five 
seats in the Florida House of Rep- 
resentatives, the Adams-Hicks 
Proposal allows no more than a 
ten percent deviation from the 
plan's ideal figure of one member 
per 50,000 oeople. 

in a state-wide average for the 
Senate, the plan would deviate 
about one percent from the ideal 
number, with one member being 
alloted to each 101,000 people. 
Palm Beach, Martin, Okeechobee, 
and St. Lucie County would share 
three Senate seats. 

A highlight of the Adams-Hicks 
Proposal, one of two plans sub- 
mitted by non-members of the Leg- 
islature, is that no county would 
be split into separate districts. 
Smaller counties, without repre- 
sentatives, would be grouped to- 
gether to form districts. 

Hicks, the originator of the plan, 
explained that he first became in- 
terested after reading that the 
Federal District Court would 
accept ideas for reapportionment 
from interested parties. 

A former PBJC graduate, Hicks 

stressed the present malapportion- 
ment. For example, each Con- 
gressman in Palm Beach County 
represents a much larger percent- 
age of people than representatives 
in some other counties. 
"This plan," Hicks elaborated, 

"is a good demonstration of how 
an average person can participate 
in government." He added that 
even though the Adams-Hicks Pro- 
posal "may be very unpopular 
politically, it is as nearly perfect 
as you can get it."

One Phone Call 

The removing of several posters on campus last week 
advertising the benefit performance of a nationally known folk 
singer at a local church caused an uproar of protest from stu- 
dents. Advertising church benefits on campus is a common 

The Student Senate passed a resolution and several hun- 
dred students signed petitions condemning the removal of the 
controversial posters as a move forced by an "extreme pressure 

The issue here is the seemingly easy way in which one 
woman, who is reported to be a district leader of the John 
Birch Society, forced school officials into ordering the removal 
of the posters, not the political affiliation of the involved 

The real and most important factor is the possible effect 
this incident may have on the atmosphere of Palm Beach 
Junior College. If one member of a small political faction 
having no connection with the junior college can control the 
policy on what may be advertised on campus, we fear what 
would happen to PBJC if the major political parties started 
using the campus as a battleground. 

This poster removal also causes us to ask why Dean of 
Student Personnel Paul Glynn must approve bulletin board 
advertising if one phone call from an outsider can overrule 
the judgment of an administrator possessing nearly twenty 
years of experience with the junior college. 

Last Sunday, in an editorial The Palm Beach Post-Times 
accused the Student Senate of acting hastily in the poster 
removing controversy. Perhaps they should similarly address 
county school officials. 

Controlled Criticisms 

Last Thursday when the Student Senate passed a resolu- 
tion protesting the removal of psychological testing from 
county elementary schools they expressed an opinion on a 
matter having nothing to do with Palm Beach Junior College. 

The purpose of the Student Senate is to represent the 
students of PBJC, not every student in the Palm Beach County 
school system. The Senate seemed to use the testing issue as 
a chance to lambast the school board, instead of serving the 
PBJC students. 

In the future we hope the Senate will control its criticisms 
to those areas concerning Palm Beach Junior College, and not 
anything available for comment.

Modern Pop Bands Have 
New Names, New Music 

by Duane Standish 

California, well known as the 
pace setter for the nation, has 
developed some new bands, pro- 
ducing a new type of sound and 
having names to match their 

This new creation is called psy- 
cohedelic sound, and is played by 
groups such as the Jefferson Air- 
plane, the Blues Magoos, the Buf- 
falo Springfield, and the Count 

The Count Five introduced this 
sound to the campus earlier this 
year and to the nation in the form 
of their number one hit, "Psycho- 
tic Reaction." 

The Blues Magoos went over 
spectacularly in New York at the 
Barge where big-name groups 
such as The Young Rascals have 

This type of music is a hard- 

rock, vibrating sound, and has 
been given an extra boost at dis- 
cotheques in California by projec- 
tion of movies and photos on the 
walls. The World in Miami has 
attempted to copy this style but 
lacks the sound that bands like 
the Count Five beat out. 

It is likely that this new sound 
will be the next big fad for youths 
to follow. 

So far the Monkees seem to 
have taken over first place in the 
nation with their Beatle-like sound. 
But since they don't play their 
own instruments they can't hold 
a candle to these new groups 

These groups' only problem is 
that they don't have the cash be- 
hind them. It is easy to become 
popular when you have millions 
of dollars backing you, and your 
records are comprised by eight 
youths, instead of the four that 
are publicized.

With the Pacer basketball program in full swing, spring 
sports begin to flourish on campus again. 

Jack Stockton's baseballers opened practice last week and 
looked impressive as they ran through their early workout. The 
Pacer nine finished last season with a fine 2-12 record. This 
year's team looks like no exception to the rule. Heading the 
squad this season will be Joe Hagin and Harold Wise, Tom 
Lovell, and Mike Hartman. 

The Pacer basketball unit ended its long drought by edging 
Orlando 71-69 in the winners' gym last week. The Box-Score 
felt this was one of the finest games played by the Pacer 
five this year. 

Guard Shawn McElroy pumped in 18 points to keep his 

17.5 average intact. 

Again, reserve forward Charlie Wright was the key in the 
roundballers" winning their fourth game in 16 starts, as he 
fired in 10 points in the first half. The former Palm Beaoh 
High star has finally received his break and is making the most 
of it; the Box Score hopes hot-handed Charlie will continue 
to collect baskets instead of splinters. 

Two other ballplayers turned in their finest performance 
of the season. Forward Ric Bradshaw and guard Tom McLaren 
combined to pull in 17 rebounds and were invaluable on 
offense and defense. 

It seems Coach Tanner's charges may have finally jelled 
and could give their remaining opponents a tough time. This 
writer feels that if certain ballplayers play up to their expecta- 
tions, the Pacers do have a chance of salvaging a respectable 
record; although, it may cause Coach Tanner a few gray 
hairs and some sleepless nights. 

The fans also deserve some special recognition while I'm 
in the process of distributing praise. Previously, when I men- 
tioned the attendance at games, we had a rousing 50-person 
turnout. I'm thrilled to say we have gone over that amount, and 
are approaching the 100 plus mark. Fans, it does the Box Score 
good to see that you, the ever-present Pacer rooters, are there 
cheering for your team. 

P.S. Charlie Wright for AU-American. 

McElroy Leads Pacers 
In Scoring, Assists 

by Kent Mitchell 
Sports Staff 

Shawn McElroy has been the 
Pacer's biggest asset this year. 
The 6'0, 155-pound freshman is the 
team's leading scorer with a 17 
point average. 

"Some boys would be resented 
for shooting a lot, but not Shawn," 
said Coach Jim Tanner. "Mc- 
Elroy works at getting his shots, 
and doesn't shoot indiscrim- 

Shawn also passes frequently. 
Statistics aren't available, but it 
is believed that he might lead the 
team in assists. 

"He is one of the best passers 
that I have ever coached," says 
former coach, Norm Price of Sea- 

Shawn was looking forward to 
a scholarship from a four-year 
college, but he was overlooked. 
His size was probably the reason. 

When asked why the team was 
doing so poorly, Shawn had these 

"We always seem to do just a 
little worse than the team that we 
are playing." 

"And we always seem to get a 
cold spell sometime in the game 
where we will get 10 or more 
points behind, and we can't seem 
to catch up after that," he con- 

"Remember, that all but three 
of this year's players are fresh- 
men," said Shawn, "and we 
should be a much better team 
next year." 

Pacers Lose 
To Miami-Dade 
By 102-65 

Using exceptional height to out- 
score and outrebound their oppo- 
nent, Miami-Dade North over- 
powered the Palm Beach Pacers 
Thursday in the losers' gym 102-65. 

The Falcons from Miami-Dade 
ripped off 43 rebounds compared 
to 26 for the Pacer cagers. The 
local cagers hit on only 11 of 22 
shots from the free throw line. 
In contrast the Falcons hit an 
amazing 30 of 35 from the foul line. 

At the half Miami-Dade held a 
49-36 advantage. 

As the second half gained mo- 
mentum so did the cagers from 
Miami as they outscored the 
Pacers 53-29. 

The final tally was 102-65, with 
the Pacers losing their 17th in 
21 contests. 

Leading scorer for the PBJC 
roundballers was Manny Carreno 
with 15 buckets. Backing him up 
with 11 and 10 points respectively 
was Tom McLaren and Shawn

Annual Spring Frolics To Feature 
Jay And The Americans Concert, 

Dance With Music Of The Turtles 

('Comber file photo) 

JAY AND THE AMERICANS are slated to perforin in concert 
on Friday night, March 31, during Spring Frolics weekend. 

Jay and the Americans in con- 
cert on Friday night and a dance 
featuring the Turtles Saturday 
night headline Spring Frolics week- 
end, March 31 and April 1. 

Student Senate Social Committee 
chairman Bill Sedmak announced 
that the contracts from the two 
groups are in the mail and noth- 
ing stands in the way of the per- 

Jay and the Americans' first 
claim to musical success came in 
the spring of 1962 when their re- 
cording of "She Cried" climbed 
into the number-one spot in the 
country. They gained further rec- 
ognition with "Only In America" 
and "Cara Mia." 

The group is currently playing 
the night club and college concert 
tour, and has appeared on sev- 
eral national television shows. 

Starting their act in one of 
southern California's most popular 
teenage nightspots, the Revelaire 
Club in Redondo Beach, the Tur- 
tles plunged into the popular music 
scene with "It Ain't Me, Babe," 
in the fall of 1965. 

This number-one song was fol- 
lowed by '"Let Me Be" and "You 
baby." Their recent release of 
"Happy Together" is currently 
climbing the charts. 

SGA Constitution Interpretation 
Prompts Two Senate Resignations 

by Frank Eberling 

As a result of a recent interpre- 
tation of the Student Government 
Association's constitution, two 
sophomore senators were asked to 
resign their positions. 

Submitting letters of resignation 
were senators Raul Ramirez and 
Dennis Brown 

The constitutional law under 
question regarded the necessity of 
an officer to maintain a grade 
point average of 2.0 while in 

The interpretation was made by 
the Judicial Board which was 
hastily appointed to make consti- 
tutional interpretations. The board 
consists of four students and four 
faculty members. The students 
are Karen Jacobs, Phil Craun, 
Joan WyflneT, and Jenelle Gehr- 
ken. The faculty members are: 
Mr. Hicks, Miss McNeely, SGA 
advisors and Dean of Women, 
Elizabeth Davey and Dean of Men, 
Robert Moss. ' 

Asked to come to a decision as 
to the status senators hold, the 
board ruled that senators are to 
be considered officers and must 
have and maintain a 2.0 while in 
office. Senators Brown and Ra- 
mirez, therefore, must resign their 

When asked how he felt con- 
cerning his possible dismissal, 

Senator Brown replied, "I feel 
that the action taken by the Ju- 
dicial Board was just, but I feel 
this decision should not effect this 
current term." 

In response, Miss McNeely said 
she felt that if it were a new 
policy she would agree, but since 
it should have been applied earlier 
this year, she could not. 

During the Senate meeting a 
motion was made to accept 
Brown's and Ramirez' letters of 
resignation. Brown's letter was 
accepted by a large majority. 

A discussion followed whereby 
it was decided to reject the let- 
ters so the senate as a body could 

have an opportunity to appeal the 
decision of the Judicial Board in 
an attempt to defend the senators. 

The decision on Brown's letter 
was then reversed and in likewise 
manner it was voted to not accept 
Ramirez' letter until such time 
when an appeal, could be made.

Clebonoff Strings To Perform 
Friday Morning In The Gym 

The Clebanoff Strings and Or-

at 10:30 a.m. in the Gym. 

This well-known chamber group, 
under the direction of Herman 
Clebanoff, was originated by him 
in 1957, and since has toured the 
country extensively and has re- 
corded many works. 

The company consists of 20 mu- 
sicians, who play stringed instru- 
ments, piano, accordian, harp and 

The first half of the perform- 

ance is a classical string concert, 
the second half consists of light 
classical chamber music, novelty 
and show tunes.

The seven awards, two first, 
one second, and three third places, 
were presented at the ninth an- 
nual Florida Junior College Press 
Association convention in Orlando. 

Although PBJC did receive the 
greatest number of the awards, 
the Beachcomber was rated third 
place in, the general excellence 

Winning first place in sports 
columns was Don Boykin, sports 
editor 1965-66. Don was judged as 
doing "... a professional job, 
writing with more introspective- 
ness," and received comments of 
'"concisely and clearly" on an 
athletic eligibility column. 

Accounting for the other first 
place was former feature editor 
George Nevin's article on FAU's 
struggling newspaper Banana Peel. 

George's ability to relay the in- 
terview subject's expressions re 
ceived good notation 

Terry Bates, 1965-66 editor-in 
chief, authored the second-awa<- 
winning editorial on the facul 
senate's voting on athletic elij, 
biiity. Respectful, responsible dis 
agreement with a faculty mem 
ber's view was cited. 

Garnering third places were 
Rob Greene for general column 
writing, Kent Mitchell and Gayle 
McElroy sharing a byline for a 
news story concerning a delay of 
GI checks; and Jon Miller for an 
advertisement designed for the

The controversy surrounding the SGA Judicial Depart- 
ment's decision that senators are officers prompts one major 
question to arise— did the Judiciary interpret the SGA consti- 
tution or the student handbook? 

The Judicial Department decided that senators are officers 
and must, therefore, accoiding to the handbook, maintain a 
2.0 average while in office. 

We cannot see any justifiable basis for this decision. 

Twice the constitution refers to the four members of the 
SGA Executive Department as officers, and student lawmakers 
as senators. 

Article II, entitled Officers and Executive Department, 
lists and describes the duties and powers of the SGA officers- 
president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer; not senators. 

One judicial board member argued that senators are 
officers because the elections article of the constitution says 
that "all elective SGA officers are to be elected annually." The 
legislative article, in nearly the same words, states that all 
senators must also be elected annually. 

Article II mentions no provisions for senatorial elections, 
thus the article referring to "elective SGA officers" must be 
meant for the members of the executive department, not the 

In making a decision on the Senate's appeal, we urge the 
udiciary to confine its interpretations to the SGA constitution, 
md not use the handbook as a crutch to overcome loopholes 
n the constitution. 

If this is done, only one logical decision can be made- 
senators are senators, not officers. 

Reporting The Facts 

". . . Articles on underage drinking and sex on campus are 
examples of the type of repoiting that moie college newspapers 
should tackle." 

Already the Beachcomber is behind the times. 

The quote above is by Jack E. Backer, Department of 
Technical Journalism at Kansas State University. His comment 
appears in the critique book of Florida's top junior college 
newspapers, Falcon Times (Miami Dade North), Venetian Crier 
(Broward), and the Beachcomber. 

Going further, Mi. Backer suggests that papers of a lesser 
ilk should ". . . report on issues and ideas that concern the 
college student-drinking, drugs, parking, Viet Nam—" 

Perhaps the Beachcomber has failed to look into all the 
dark crevices, crannies, and smoky corners. 

Smoky corners? 

Maybe PBJC's most glaring student problem on campus is 
■nly the theft of ashtrays. 

With these thoughts in mind, why can't you students create 
isational stories with which the Beachcomber can win

. . . And That Is How To 
Make A Smash Record . . . 



by Nick Bougis 

It seems that a new trend of 
record making has evolved in 
these United States through the 
efforts of various prominent Amer- 
icans in and out of government. 
One might say that a new mile- 
stone in history has been set. 

In Palm Beach County, the like- 
liness of turning out a variety of 
records is quite probable provided 
that the residents and politicians 
can locate a renown manager to 
aid them in their jog to stardom. 

For instance, the County Parks 
Department might make a record 
concerning the removal of trees 
on Congress Avenue, entitled, 
"Royal Palm Are Out; Weeds Are 
In." The taxpayers will rush to 
hear it. 

The Auditorium Committee 
could cut a platter concerning the 
completion date of the structure 
which might be labeled, "We 
Won't Be Late In '68." 

County school children involved 
in the psychological test program 
might initiate a song called "My 
Straight Jacket's Cleaner Than 

Penniless and poverty-stricken 
students, who after researching at 
the WPB City Library, may spin 
a smash hit entitled, "Peter Put 
A Dime In The Parking Meter." 

School Board officials tried their 
best at making a hit record 
labeled, "Change The Name and 
Lose Your Fame;" chaos, is the 
only word for it. 

Local right-wing groups in the 

city might be awarded a record 
called, "The Men Who Never 

Talent does exist; all you have 
to do, is let it flower. 


as superintendent until a ne?i, 
could be elected the followiri' 
vember, with the stipulatio*.; 
he could not seek office fc 
at that election. l 

When present superinte f 
Robert W. Fulton was e- 
Martin returned to his formti 
as assistant superintendent '' 

Announcement of Martln'sr' 
fer was not unexpected. Conk- 
stories of friction between ^ 
and Fulton were capped «.i" 
report that Fulton had asked < 
tin to resign. . 

Board members balked i. 
move, pointing to Martin's K 
to the school system and f 
fact that he is approaching C 
ment age. 

Tate returns from sabb. 
leave on September 1, 1967. 


Now in its second year of inter- 
collegiate sports with only one 
team so far above the .500 mark, 
(last year's golf team won six, 
lost two), PBJC will soon have its 
second winning team, according 
to tennis coach, Harris D. McGirt. 

McGirt, whose tennis Pacers 
posted a respectable 3-7 record 
last year, makes his prediction in 
spite of the fact that only one 
man is returning from last year's 
squad, and he didn't play in a 
single match. 

"Unless the other teams improve 
greatly, we'll be well over 500," 
McGirt says. "If the opposition 
stacks up like it did last year, 
we would win every match easily 
except the two with Miami-Dade 
North, last year's national 

The catch is that in Junior Col- 
lege circles, any team can change 
completely from one year to the 
next, like the Pacers will this 
year, so prediction becomes dif- 

"Miami-Dade North has to be 
the team to beat," McGirt says. 
"They have their two top players 
back, but we will have two who 
can battle them on pretty even 
terms, and beat them if they are 
not at the top of their game."

The Pacers missed a come-from- 
behind victory Monday night by 
one point as Pat McCaffery's last- 
second layup shot missed to give 
Indian River a 66-65 win. 

The Pacers' lack of height was 
the big factor in the game. They 
were out rebounded 30-16 and most 
of the night were able to get only 
one shot. 

A cold first half also contributed 
to the loss They only shot 36 
per cent to the Pioneer's 57. 

Indian River went out at half- 
time with a 33-28 lead and built 
it up to nine points at times in 
the second half. 

The Pacers started a comeback 
drive with four minutes left and 

scored 12 points to the Pioneer's 
four in a three minute period. 

Two free throws by Indian 
River's Bob Snyder gave the vic- 
tory to the Pioneers. 

In an attempt to make one last 
shot good the Pacers took too 
much time and were able to get 
off only one as the buzzer

and five general-purpose class- 
rooms, with special equipment in 
two of the rooms for accounting, 
are to be on the third floor. 

A student center, basically a 
covered area for vending ma- 
chines is located north of the main 
part of the building on the first 
floor, extending out to the south- 
ern edge of the new parking lot, 
now nearing completion. An ex- 
ternal elevator will be located 
north of the main building. 

One exterior feature of the build- 
ing not shared by the Learning 
Resources building is the provi- 
sion for store showcase windows, 
for use in the retailing program. 
These windows are similar to 
those currently in use in more 
modern stores in the community. 

As soon as space on the third 
floor of the Library Learning Re- 
sources, presently occupied by 
the Business Administration de- 
partment, can be vacated, the 
library is to expand to the top 

Architect Jefferson Powell said 
the first work on the building is 
to compact the soil by Vibraflota- 
tion, since the test borings showed 
regular footings could not support 
the weight of the building without 
this preliminary step. 

The building is a part of the 
master plan adopted for the cam- 
pus in 1963. The three-building 
complex it forms will eventually 
be added to by three buildings of 
similar size to form the largest 
single complex on the completed

New Computer Offers Help 
For Registration, Scheduling 

Registration and scheduling are 
only two of the benefits to be 
obtained from a new computer 
recently installed at PBJC. 

Described as "absolutely first 
class" by Dale Washburn, data 
processing coordinator, the com- 
puter is built around an IBM 1401 
main processor, with throughput 


devices, auxiliary memory units 
and disc filed. 

The computer, the second of its 
type to be operational in the Palm 
Beach County School system, is 
currently being leased with an 
option to purchase at "very favor- 
able" terms, according to PBJC 
President, Dr. Harold C. Manor. 



"For high speed driving and today's powerful enomes, 
we buy Firestone tires and TEXACO petrol 
at 10th and Congress in Lake Worth."

vels over the speed and accuracy produced by the newly 
acquired IBM computer, while data processing student, Sylvia 
Birdsong, looks on. 

Elaborating on the machine, Dr. 
Manor commented that, "Had we 
made our arrangements for this 
computer just six months earlier, 
it would have cost us two and one- 
half times as much." 

"The offer of a 60 per cent dis- 
count by IBM was one of the com- 
pelling factors in the selection 
of this particular computer," 
Manor added. 

An additional reason for the 
selection is that the computer 
is the type used in most businesses 
today, and will aid advanced data 
processing students in additional 
machine time. 

The new computer will also be 
used for advanced teaching, and

Sing Out '67 Group 
Presents Assembly 
In Gym This Morning 

by Dave Doucette 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

Sing Out '67, a group of over 
150 college and high school stu- 
dents sponsored by Moral Re-Arm- 
ament Inc., appears at a special 
SGA assembly this morning at 
10:30 in the gym. 

The regular assembly schedule 
is in effect. 

The student Senate met Monday 
to approve the appropriation of 
$250 to finance the program. 

Sing Out was born in the sum- 
mer of 1965 when thousands of 
students from 150 colleges and 
300 high schools gathered in Mich- 
igan's Isle of Mackinac to attend 
a youth conference sponsored by 
Moral Re-Armament. The cast of 
130 come from 52 campuses and 
17 countries. 

The idea of forming a traveling 
show came from Sing Out's origi- 
nators. The Colwell Brothers, four 
brothers from Los Angeles 

The Colwells, who have written 
over 300 original songs in 48 

languages, traveled to all corners 
of the world for nine years before 
returning to the U. S. with infor- 
mation concerning Sing Out. 

Since their beginning in 1965, 
Sing Out has accomplished much. 
They have performed at over 350 
colleges and schools, the four U.S. 
service academies, 81 military 
bases, and in various countries 
of Europe, Asia, and South 

Sing Out produced a one-hour 
TV spectacular that was seen 
coast to coast in the United States, 
and by 25-million in West and East 

From the one cast in 1965, Sing 
Out has expanded into three full- 
time traveling casts of 150 in the 
United States, with similar ones 
in Japan, Korea, Germany, East 
Africa, Australia, Canada, the Car- 
ibbean, and South America. 

They have also trained over 
10,000 youths in more than 130 
regional Sing Outs throughout the

in the SAC Building and the only cost is an entry fee 
of one dollar to cover the prizes that will be awarded.

The Fall Of Time 

With the continuous rise of buildings on the campus comes 
the frequently overheard muttering to the tune of, "This is 
going to be a fabulous place in two or three years." 

Let us say that PBJC is a fabulous place right now and 
shows evidence of becoming an even greater recognized junior 
college on the national level. 

The present standards and the enviable future ahead we 
wonder if everything or anything is on schedule, the schedule 
being upset as long ago as September of 1964. 

At that time hurricane Cleo ravaged PBJC leaving all 
clocks in classrooms with untimely readings. 

If we count properly (most of our staff has had MS 106), 
there has been a time lapse of two years and five months with 
timepieces in Science, Humanities, Technical, Social Science 
buildings still faltering miserably. 

Last year the reason was given that the water level of 
Lake Osborne created havoc with the underground network. 
This problem is purportedly solved with the new drainage 


Frustrated teachers who teach in a particular classroom 
have gone through work order procedures to repair the clock, 
but there remain rooms where a student's wristwatch or deli- 
cate readings of the sun are the only source of time. 

The Beachcomber suggests an authorized room-by-room 
check to repair the clocks, and maybe students' construction 
of knowledge can progress with the campus. 

Finance Position 

John Martin has been appointed acting assistant director 
of services until next fall. 

Martin comes to the college after several years with the 
board of public instruction as assistant superintendent for 
business affairs, the man he replaces, George (Tony) Tate, is 
on sabbatical leave this term and came to PBJC as a physical 
education teacher before joining the finance department. 

We feel that because of Martin's extensive background in 
finance and administration he should truly be an asset to the 
department, and to PBJC. 


The Beachcomber is published week i r tlwqughoot the fall 
and winter trimesters from onr editorial oHices in the Student 
Activity Center at Palm &HKh Jumor College, 4200 Oonsres.

Association, Associated Colleewte Press, and the Florida Junior

Endless Summer' Suggests ! 
New Image For Surfing Bun 

('Comber staff photo by Dave Doucette) 

Pacer's Pride 

by Anne McChristian 

'Comber Staff Writer 

At last a "surfing movie" has 
been made that is not an insult 
to the sport. '"The Endless Sum- 
mer" is to Hollywood's "Beach 
Blanket Bingo" as Hamlet is to 
a TV soap opera. 

Contrary to some opinion, surf- 
ing is not a sport that only blonde, 
long-haired, California delinquents 
indulge in when they're not "rid- 
ing" on LSD instead. By being 
simply an honest, beautiful, and 
often humorous account of surfing, 
"The Endless Summer" shows 
surfing to be what it is, a mag- 
nificent, graceful, and challenging 

The film, produced, directed, 
and edited by Bruce Brown, is a 

skillful combination of documen- 
tary and travelogue The camera 
follows two young California surf- 
ers as they travel around the 
world m search of surf. 

The photography, all in color, 
is exceptional, capturing the awe- 
some power and beauty of waves 
from California, Hawaii, and Ta- 
hiti, to Africa, Australia, and New 

At Cape St. Francis, Africa, two 
young surfers, Mike Hyman and 
Robert August, find "The perfect 
wave;" not one, but an endless 
succession of faultless surf, and 
the rides they get will "blow the 
mind" of any surfing addict. 

"The Endless Summer" is not 
out to "improve the image" of 
the sport, although it undoubtedly 
will for the image- conscious It's 

just good solid entertainme-' 
surfers who have braved (k 
north shore break, as Wr i 
for non-surfers, landlubbers, t 
boarders, and "parents" < 
The movie has almost it 
sal appeal, without becoming* 
of those flavorless amalgams- 
that masquerades as a film? 
"something for everybody" > 

KAY RENFRO, 19-year-old from Pompano Beach, adds the 
grace this week. 

Voicing an interest in most water sports, Kay claims to be 
an elementary education major. 

When asked if she cooks, this week's Pacers' Pride replied 
that her best is called "London Broile" which is a steak cooked 
with tomato sauce and mushrooms, or was it hog jowls and

Political Science Instructor 
To Run For State Legislature 

C. Errol Hicks, PBJC political 
science instructor, filed last week 
to run for the state legislature in 
District 79. 

A Democrat, Hicks is campaign- 
ing against incumbent Republican 
Robert DeYoung. 

Hicks has been 
an instructor here 
for one year and „. 
earned his bach- / 
elor's and mas- 
ter's degrees in 
government at 
the University of 
Florida. He grad- 
tated from PBJC before attend- 
ing the U. of F. 

When questioned as to his rea- 

sons for pursuing- a position in 
the legislature, Hicks replied that 
his interest in the affairs of the 
state and the need for "dynamic, 
yet youthful leadership" prompted 
him to transfer into contention 
for the legislative seat. 

"Government is my subject and 
running for the legislature puts 
into practice what I have learned 
and taught," Hicks stated. 

Commenting on possible issues, 
Hicks outlined three areas— Con- 

stitutional revision, quality educa- 
tion, and taxation. 

"The constitution must be com- 
pletely updated with a complete 
revision, as the present one was 
written for a nineteenth century 
Florida," said Hicks of the first 
problem the new legislature will 
face in April. 

One of the major changes in the 
proposed new constitution, the low- 
ering of the voting age to 18, has 
Hicks' support.

The Crucible'. . . A Look Backstage 

by Gary Brietenbeck 

•Combar Staff Writer 
PBJC's next dramatic produc- 
tion, THE CRUCIBLE, is now 
deep into its rehearsal schedule. 
Dropping by one of the rehearsals, 
this reporter took the opportunity 
to talk to some of the twenty 
players in the cast. 

On stage an unpainted set hung 
heavily from ropes, while the 
actors ran thru the first act. After 
delivering his last line in the 
scene, Ronald Gies, playing the 
hero of this tragedy, walked off. 
Coming back stage he glanced 
aside at a tight- clad young actress 
then looking at me, accentuated 
his expression with a slow moving 
—Ronnie, will you talk a minute? 
—About what? 
About the play? 
—You're doing the story? Again 
came the slow laugh. 

—Forget it. What plays have 
you been in at PBJC? 

—All of them last year, Hamlet, 
Fantasticks— was Henry the Shake- 
spearean actor, The Barretts of 
Wimpole Street. I spent last sum- 
mer in summer stock, played Mr. 
Gatch in How to Succeed in Busi- 
ness, that was a big play. Look, 
we're doing the second scene to- 
night and I've got to study my 
lines. Let me talk to you later. 

Playing opposite Ronnie in the 
role cf Abigail Williams is Pam 
tackey. Pam is relatively new 
our stage, first appearing in 
term's The Adding Machine, 
made an early theatrical de- 
playing in her school's pro- 
ion of Winnie the Pooh at the 
of seven. She is a delightfully 
rming, interested girl with a 
id love for the stage. 
—Tell me a little bit about 

— She's a self-centered, very 

'ain girl. She's also constantly 

icting, putting on things, and she 

■wis the other girls by screaming 

ind yelling. The play is a tragedy 

nd Abigail helps bring that about; 

ihe only cares about what she 


Watching the rehearsal from the 

it of the auditorium was John 

phy. He is one of the hardest 

ang of the college players; 

mly has he had a role in ai- 

. every college production in 

past two years, but he also 

has served in some major capac 
ity in technical work. 

—You're playing a preacher in 
this play, John? 

—Reverend Samuel Parris, a 
tormented man constantly perse- 
cuted by his congregation, con- 
stantly struggling against the peo- 
ple. In order to preserve his dig- 
nity he lashes out at the commu- 
nity. He's only trying to win 
them back to God. They've had 
several preachers, and he's aware 
of this, but he still won't bend 
to them. 

—Sounds like you're in sympa- 
thy with your character, did you 
work him out with Mr. Coggin? 
(Let me note here that this is 
the first play Mr. Coggin has di- 
rected at PBJC. The plays are 
usually under the direction of Mr. 
Frank Leahy, and in the past, Mr. 
Coggin has directed only the tech- 
nical aspects.) 

—How do you like working 
under him? 

-4fe has a sensitivity to the 
problems of the characters, and 
is beginning to work on charac- 
ter. So far I'm very happy. 

—What do you think of the pro- 
duction as a whole?? 

—Wild. It is going to take an 
extremely strong stage crew. The 
set is basic; the play deals with 
basic human emotions. It's sort 
of an impressionistic naturalism. 
The script is well put together, 
complete in the sense that it 
shows why everything is done. The 
only fault I can find is that the 
characters are not established, you 
only know how they react and 
you have to build on that. 

—You've worked on lighting for 
most productions, are you doing it 
on this one? 

—Well, Bob Holley and Buddy 
Robson are in charge of it, but 
as the play progresses I keep 
thinking how things might be done. 

—Thanks, John. Let me go talk 
to Andy a minute about the

Marshall of the City," in The Cru-

"I think it would be safe to say 
we will hold graduation there if it 
is finished in time," replied Elbert 
E. Bishop, PBJC registrar, when 
asked whether graduation cere- 
monies will be held in the new 
West Palm Beach Civic Audi- 

"Although a formal contract has 
not been signed," Bishop said, 
"Manager Ralph Boyes has prom- 
ised to hold May 5 for PBJC's 

The decision to hold graduation 
in the new auditorium was made 
by the Graduation Committee. It 
was felt that the auditorium's 
seating and air conditioning would 
make it more comfortable, and its 
central location would make it 
more convenient for all attending. 

The auditorium is expected to 
be completed and open to the pub- 
lic in late April, with dedication 
ceremonies April 30. 

This spring's graduating class 
numbers about 375. Graduates 
from last December and August 
have been invited to take part in 
the presentation ceremonies, 
bringing the participation to ap- 
proximately 450. 

If the auditorium is not ready 
by graduation, the ceremonies will 
take place in our gymnasium. The 
graduation would be the first func- 
tion held in the new auditorium.

Millers Hit The Crucible 
Starts Run Tomorrow Night 

by Gayle McElroy 

'Comber Feature Editor 

A dense forest . . . girls danc- 
ing around a brewing pot . . . 
conjuring the dead ... a deep 
trance ... an accusation of 

This unusual array of happen- 
ings unfolds with the opening of 
one of Arthur Miller's most ac- 
claimed plays, "The Crucible," 
beginning tomorrow night in the 

Miller wrote the play in 1953 
to compensate for the national 
hysteria following accusations of 
innocent people being called Com- 
munists, a deed begun by Joe 
McCarthy, Wisconsin senator. 

In "The Crucible," Miller shows 
weakness in the national charac- 
ter of a group of people, presum- 
ably dedicated to freedom and 
the right of dissent, and yet so 
susceptible to hysterical violence 
against heretics and dissentors. 

Long-held hatreds of neighbors 
could now be expresssed. 

According to the play, "It sud- 
denly became possible— and patri- 
otic and holy— for a man to say 
that Martha Corey had come into 
his bedroom at night, and that, 
while his wife was sleeping at his 
side, Martha laid herself down on 
his chest and 'nearly suffocated 
him.' Of course, it was her spirit 
only, but his satisfaction at con- 
fessing himself was no lighter 
than if it had been Martha her- 

Though the setting of the play 
is Salem, Massachusetts, 1692, the 
problems of hysteria and intoler- 
ance that Miller has exemplified 
offer a contemporary lesson. 

In the introduction to "The Cru- 
cible," Richard Watts, Jr., stresses 
Miller's preoccupation "with the 
moral problems of modern Amer- 

ican society and adds that Miller 
"inevitably still had them in mind 
when he wrote his play about sev- 
enteenth century Salem." 

Watts emphasizes that " 'The 
Crucible,' unhampered by distract- 

ing topical questions, stands forth 
as an eloquent statement on the 
universal subject of the free man's 
courageous and never-ending fight 
against mass pressures to make 
him bow down in conformity."

Working Together 

Campus social, service, and special interest organizations 
were allocated by the SGA nearly twelve thousand dollars 
from student activity fees last fall, with the stipulation that 
they finance an event or project open to the student body. 

With the few thousand dollars left the Senate must finance 
its years activities. They are handicapped in this effort because 
some of this budget must be set aside for the summer trimester 
as the fees collected then are not enough to finance the sum- 
mer s events. 

Of the nearly twelve thousand dollars given to organiza- 
tions, any monies not used are returned to the SGA at the end 
of the winter term. This amount varies from year fo year (last 
June the SGA had a balance of over ten thousand dollars). 

The SGA could sponsor more events for the students if the 
amount given to organizations was cut by one-third to one-half 

Most campus organizations claim to create a sort of unity 
among their membership by spending SGA funds on a project 
or event. These organizations would be even further unified if 
they raised part of the funds for their special event of the 
year. When the SGA cabinet meets to prepare next year's 
budget we hope they will cut down their allocations to campus 
organizations. SGA, campus organizations, and the student 
body as a whole would gain from this action.

by Suzy Glave 

'Comber Staff Writer 

What was once a tradition at 
PBJC until 1964 is now being in- 
vestigated and brought to the at- 
tention of the administration. 

The possibility of two free sched- 
uled hours a week came to light 
after the results of a Broward 
Junior College survey revealed 
many Florida junior colleges are 
considering more activity period 

An activity period from 9:50 to 
10:30, without classes, was sched- 
uled at PBJC Monday through 
Friday until 1964 when it was 
abolished because the student pop- 
ulation was growing faster than 
the facilities. Some also felt that 
not enought students were taking 
part in activities five days a weej? 
to warrant the free period. 

Since 1964, the work sheet for 
class scheduling at registration 
has had a memo to the students 
from Paul Glynn, dean of student 
personnel, which states, "The 11:00 
to 12:00 (4th hour) time has been 
lightly scheduled so as to permit 
college activities. Schedule around 
this time if you are interested in 
college activities." 

PBJC has since grown, not only 
in student population but also in 
facilities, and plans for the near 
future are going to change the 
face of the campus drastically. 
For the past two years our growth 
has been evidenced by the ever- 
present construction crews, and 
their equipment, buzzing of saws 
and pounding of hammers. 

Dr. Paul Graham, dean of in- 
struction, says that PBJC now has 
153 professsors and 95 classrooms. 
The new business building, to be 
completed 230 work days from 
February 9, will house an addi- 
tional 15 classrooms. 

There are 53 classes on Mon- 
days; 56, Tuesday; 54, Wednes- 
day; 49, Thursday and 52 on 
Friday for the 1967 winter term. 
An activity period could be used 
for club meetings, assemblies, fac- 
ulty department meetings and any 
other occasions without disrupting 
a day's class scheduling. 

The SGA Communications Board 
Chairman, David Parker, con* 
ducted a survey Thursday, Feb- 
ruary 3, which suggested a free 
activity period twice a week. The 
results were as follows: 

1. Would you favor an activity 
period twice a week with no 
classes scheduled at this time? 

68%, yes; 23%, no. 

2. Would you take advantage 
of a free activity period? 

73%, yes; 27%, no. 

3. What type clubs would you 
participate in? (Sampling of 
266 polls) Some students marked 
more than one type of activity. 

35%, Social; 33%, Service; 35%, 
Special Interest; 8% abstained. 

4. Have you had to become in- 
active, because of class schedul- 

ing conflicts, in any club 1 ,? 

32%, yes; 73%, no. : 


Several presidents of cr" 
organizations commented «, 
proposal of two free pciu,. 
week for activities with <n.vf 
marks as, "This type of air.* 
ment will be badly needed *; 
the next two years if nut t 
memberships keep on theirs 1 
increase." f 

After talking witli seven' [ 
ministrators, the only opjy- 
this reporter encountered v,u\ 
Harold C. Manor, PBJC prc^ 
who feels that an activity f. f 
hadn't worked before and w*} 
work now because of the !■>" 
student participation and iki 
dent enrollment explosion.

THE VOLUNTEERS accompany a Sing Out member during performance 
of the largest student-attended assembly in PBJC history. 

by Gayle McElroy 

'Comber Feature Editor 

Perhaps it was the determination shown on the 
faces representing 14 countries or maybe it was the 
packed and captivated gym that made one realize 
that when Sing Out '67 presented "Freedom Isn't 
Free" that it is more than a song. It is their reason 
for existing. 

An indication of Sing Out's popularity, the record 
is presently rated number one in Nashville, Santa 
Fe, and Los Angeles. 

Aimed directly towards modernizing today's 
youth, Sing Out is winning the hearts of a far larger 
sector of the population. 

Ex president Eisenhower has gone so far as to 
say "If I were a few years younger, I would go to 
the nearest Sing Out recruiting station. I'm thankful 
there are 600 of you, but I only wish there were 
six million." 

The first Americans to be invited to Indonesia 
after the doors closed to the Peace Corps in 1965, 
were a group of Sing Out students, including the 
Volunteers, the lead group that performed at an 
assembly last Wednesday. 

Following a concert at Wasedi University, one 
of the most revolutionary schools in Japan, 300 
Communist agitators admitted that they'd "seen 
young Americans with more dedication than any 
young Communist Chinese or Russians and if this is 
what young America is really for, we're for it! " Sing 
Out was the first group allowed at the university 
since the poor reception of Robert Kennedy several 
years ago. 

Sing Outs have spread to each of the five majoi 
continents This summer when American Sing Outs 
are traveling world-wide, many foreign formed Sing 
Outs will be touring the United States. 

Keith Frohreich, cast member, stressed the 
opportunity Sing Out presents "to drown out the 
feeling that God is dead." 

Fellow cast member Willie Stores, who has trav- 
eled with Sing Out in Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Ja- 
maica, and Panama, expressed the development of 
character, "not color, race, and movement." 

Pert and petite Hisako Kataoka, Japanese, piped 
in with her strong belief "that my country and many 
European countries look toward America for answers 
to their problems and see what America is doing " 

Enthusiasm was also expressed by Cuban-born 
Zayda Diaz who explained how last fall she and 80 
other Puerto Rican students raised $30,000, chartered 
a plane, and attended the Sing Out conference in 
Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was then she decided to 
join the Sing Out '67 group. 

The Sing Out popularity will be expressed next 
month in a Reader's Digest article. 

PACE, the Sing Out magazine, has recently out 
sold Playboy.

Baseball Squad Opens Season 
n Game With Miami-Dade North 

by Kent Mitchell 

'Combat- Staff Writer 

The Pacer baseball team plays 
their first Division 4 game today, 
3 p.m., against Miami-Dade at 

Kuchar Leads 
Golfers Over 
Indian River 

FORT PIERCE-Wally Kuchar 
fired a two over par 74 Thursday 
to pace the Palm Beach Junior 
College golf team to a 7-5 win 
over Indian River JC at Indian 
Hills Country Club. 

Marcel Fastier carded a 79 for 
Palm Beach and Charles LaClair 
matched it for Indian River. 

John Prince Park. 

Thursday they will return the 
favor by traveling to Miami-Dade 
in a "home and home" series. 

The Pacers played three games 
over the weekend. They hit the 
road against Manatee, St. Peters- 
burg, and Polk. 

The team came home with three 
losses, bad colds, and Coach 
Stockton having a case of walking 

All of the games were played in 
the rain accompanied by 40 degree 
weather. The first, against Mana- 
tee, was a squeaker with the 
Pacers coming up on the short 
end 2-1. 

St. Pete and Polk took the 
Pacers to the cleaners by 8-0, and 
8-2, respectively. 

These losses aren't an indication 

of the team, however Stockton 
was supposed to be experimenting 
on the trip, so we probably won't 
really know what the team will be 
able to do until this afternoon. 

mi Girl Mettm 
Best Miami -Daifo 

The Palm Beach Junior College 
Girls' tennis team scored a 
convincing 8-1 victory over 
visiting Miami-Dade in a one-net 
tennis tournament Thursday at the 
Esser Racquet Club. 

The Pacer netter's single loss 
to the match game came in the 
first singles game. PBJC pro- 
ceeded to win the following six 
singles matches and followed by 
downing Miami-Dade in both 
doubles matches. 

The Air Force doesn't want 
to waste your college education 

any more than you do. 

Are you afraid of becoming part 
of the woodwork on a job 7 Your 
career stunted by boredom? Few 
promotions in sight 7 

You didn't go to college for that. 

And it needn't happen, either. 
Because you can pick the United 
States Air Force as your employer. 
Career opportunities are so vast . 
you'll get a better chance to spe- 
cialize where you want in the 
forefront of modern science and 

Suppose, just for example, you 
wanted to be involved in Elec- 
tronics. This area alone includes 
Communications-Electronics, Mis- 
sile Electronics, Avionics, and 
others And these, in turn, involve 
administrative, research, and other 
technical aspects 

That's just a tiny part of the 
whole Air Force picture. Just 
one brilliant opportunity area 
among many 

You'll cnioy good pay, promo- 
tions, chance to travel, active social 
life, fine retirement benefits And 
you'll be serving your country, too 

Or maybe you want to fly? That's 
great The Air Force is certainly the 
place to do it. 

As a college graduate you want 
something extra out of life— to aim 
at an exciting goal. So send in 
this coupon 

Make sure you don't get stuck 
where nothing much id happening.

The Crucible— Backsfraqe That Is 

by Gary Brietenbeck 

'Comber Staff Writer 

(continued from last week) 
Back stage there is an upstairs 

dressing room where the actors 

and actresses not doing a scene 
go to talk, to sew, and to play 
chess, cards and guitars. Talking 
was Pat Britton, a little girl with 
long black hair falling nearly down 
to the hem of her patent leather 

Pat was nominated for "Best 
Supporting Actor" in "Dark of the 
Moon" and in "Fanta sticks." She 
also won "Best Minor Character" 
for her portrayal of Bella in "The 
Barretts of Wimpole Street," and 
has played in the off-Broadway 
play "Circus," on a Greenwich 
V.llage stage. 

—You're playing a young girl 
this time, Pat? 

— Yes, Mar^r Warren— no rela- 
tion to Chief Justice. 

—How do you like it? 

— Well, it's a challenge because 
she's a normal teenage girl. Usu- 
ally I play way out parts. I was 
an old witch, then a young boy, 
then a neuter mute, and in "Bar- 
retts" I was a giggly, scatter- 
brained English girl with a lisp- 
that was my favorite part. 

— How do you like working for 
Mr. Cc 

—I think it's a great opportunity 
for students to work under a 
different director. After working 
with the same director you know 
what to expect and what's ex- 
pected of you, so it's good experi- 
ence for me. 

Sitting off in a corner quietly 
sewing on a costume was a new 
face in the college players. Kay- 
dore Felder. She is a reserved, 
serious, interesting young girl. 

—This is your first play, isn't it, 

—I was in lots of plays in high 
school; my senior year I had the 
lead in the "Miracle Worker." 

—And how do you like "The 

—It's an emotional play and 1 
like lots of emotion. I like my 
part; Tituba is a Negro slave in 
her fifties accused of being a 
witch. Some Negroes won't like 
it; but I like it and I plan to do 
it with feeling and without shame.. 

A girl who has done a great deal 
not only for the plays but for the 
drama department as a whole, is 
Janet Findling. Whenever there's 
business to be done, a phone call 
to be made, or a message to be 
delivered, Janet is there and 


Aside from high school she has 
played in "The Thurber Carnival," 
and "The Adding Machine." In 
"The Crucible" she plays Re- 
becca Nurse, a very wise, re- 

and one of the tragic figures. 

— Are you doing something other 
than acting, Janet? 

— I'm in charge of the box office. 

— Could you tell briefly about 
the tickets? 

—Well, the high school night is 
March 1, which is a Wednesday, 
and the regular performances run 
from March 2-5. The tickets are 
$1.50 for adults and $1.00 for stu- 
dents, and they may be purchased 
the week before and the week 
during the play. If you reserve 
tickets, they must be picked up 
before 8:00 p.m. the night they 
are reserved for. 

After the rehearsal, I talked a 
moment with Burt Merriam. 
Every few years PBJC's drama 
department manages to turn out 
an outstanding young actor— Burt 
Merriam is one. 

His warmth, sincerity, wit, and 
deep dedication to the theatre 
have made him not only one of 
the finest, but also one of the most 
likeable actors. He has had a 
role in every college production 
for the past two years, and has 

1 ini j i jliji iVji. 

had major parts in "The Afc 
Machine" (Mr. Zero), "A De 
in My View" and now In 1 
Crucible." 5 

Burt has served back stags 
well; for the last production 
was head of lights and shop f 
man, and for "The Crucible") 
is in charge of set conslnr 

Sometime after 11:00, Mr. Ci 
gin made a point of the tirau*

In Daytona March 9-11 

('Comber staff photo by Tom Kisko) 

Slf PRYWELLER, director of the college stage band, directs

nual Circle K Florida District con- 
vention at the Americano Hotel in

'Walk, Don't Run' 

Al King Has Unique Hobby 

by Gayle McEIroy 

•Comber Feature Editor 

Do you have the feeling that you break 
speed records getting from class to class? 


J% - -1 - 

""^"^ "" ('Comber file photo) 

bursts forth during the last few laps of a 
race walk held at Lake Worth High Track. 

Well, so long as you don't sprint, you may 
unknowingly be fitting yourself for the un- 
noted sport known as race walking. 

Sophomore Al King, making a hobby 
pay off, took up race walking last summer 
and has been winning awards ever since. 

"Race walking," King defined, "involves 
a carefully developed stride used while 
walking as fast as you can without leaving 
the ground. In other words, one foot must 
be touching the ground at all rimes." 

Explaining the local races he's entered, 
King described the entries numbering 
around 30 and ranging in age from 12 to 
74. "The races," he added, "are anywhere 
from one mile to twelve and a half miles 

Exercise was one of the main points 
King stressed. He averages walking about 
40-60 miles a weekl Sprinting and trunk 
twists conclude his exercise. 

Al King is definitely on the move. 
While captain of his track team at Forest 
Hill High School, he ran over 1,000 miles 
in his senior year! 

A race walking club has been started 
locally by the man who holds the record 
for the mile-walk, Bill Grandy. Interested 
participants are welcome to attend meet- 
ings held here, there, and everywhere. 

So, if you don't mind an enthusiastic 
and inconspicuous (?) jog around the block, 
new members are being recruited. 

Polls will be located in the SAC 
Lounge, near the old library, and 
on the first floor of the LRC. 

Formal campaign speeches are 
scheduled for Monday, March 20, 
at 11:00 a.m. on the SAC patio. 
Candidates will give three-minute 
speeches followed by a question 
md answer period. 

In an effort to conduct the elec- 
tion as smoothly as possible, the 
Student Election Board is prepar- 
ing a set of rules and regulations 
to be given to candidates and poll- 

"We hope that enough dedicated 
and deserving students will qual- 
ify for these offices to insure the 
students of a competitive race," 
stated Dave Doucette, chairman of 
the Elections Board. 

"The student body suffers when 
a candidate wins an office unop- 
posed, " he continued. 

Political Union 
Attends Confab 
This Saturday 

Representatives of the Political 
Union, a non-partisan governmen- 
tal student organization, are at- 
tending the annual workshop of 
the Florida Center for Education 
in Politics, at Florida Atlantic Uni- 
versity, March 11. 

The organization, dedicated to 
increasing knowledge of govern- 
ment and politics, will partici- 
pate in a question and answer 
period following panel discussions 
on reapportionment and metropoli- 
tan problems. 

C. Errol Hicks, PU advisor and 
political science instructor, is a 
member of the reapportionment 
panel. Hicks recently submitted 
one of several plans to the Fed- 
eral District Court in Miami for 
reapportioning the Florida Legis- 


The list of students attending 
the workshop was not available 
at press time, but is expected to 
number between 10 and 15.

PA System Reliable? 

All that could be heard was a small voice from the back. 
People tilted their heads to pick up what seemed to be only 
"channel noise" from speakers in the Gym, 

When a personality of the magnitude such as Lawrence 
Spivak is to talk to PBJC and area guests it is nothing less 
than a shame that the public address system fails at a given 

Forced to sit behind a table and lean into a microphone 
Spivak certainly had the audience in his favor. But we can't 
help but feel that a little of the polish and glitter of the occa- 
sion was tarnished. 

With the past behind, think now of the immediate future. 

In little more than three weeks the Gym will be used 
two successive nights for Spring Frolics. 

SGA should investigate the reliability of the sound system 
now, rather than fall hen- to the memory of a concert that 
didn't reach the audience. 

Passage Not Enough 

The student senate unanimously passed a resolution several 
weeks ago recommending that the administration reinstitute a 
student activities period possibly twice a week at their 

After contacting the president of student government and 
ie president of the Senate we discovered that neither of them 
ad signed the resolution— nor did they know where it was. 

We commend the Senate for supporting the resolution but 
mere passage is just a beginning-it must be followed by de- 
cided action. 

More Music Please 

"I didn't even know we had a band at the college," was 
the comment made by several of the nearly 200 students who 
viewed the practice of the college stage band in the SAC 
Lounge last Thursday afternoon. 

We hope the campus musicmakers will consider present- 
ing these swingin' sessions" more often. They entertain the 
students, and at the same time, give the band an opportunity 
to practice before a live audience.

Dean's Report Shows 

Probation, Enrollment 
Suspension Flgyres 

Suspension and probation rate 
goes up— enrollment goes down. 

A status report released by 
Dean Paul Glynn, dean of stu- 
dent personnel, shows that of 3,162 
fall day students, 196 were placed 
on continued academic probation 
and 388 on probation for the first 
time. 287 of those on probation 
for the first time were freshmen. 
Six percent of the day students 
were suspended 

Of the 1,529 students enrolled 
in evening classes, 319 were placed 
or continued on academic proba- 
tion. Four percent of the night 
enrollment is on suspension 

PBJC's total enrollment dropped 
from 4,584 in the fall to 4,268 for 
the winter term, or a 14% de- 
crease. Suspension accounts for 
58% of the decrease in enrollment

Three Constitutional SGA Amendments 
To Be Voted On In Next Week's Election 

by Dave Doucette 

'Camber Editor-in-Chief 

Three insignificant, but needed 
constitutional amendments are on 
the ballot for next week's SGA 

The three proposed amendments 
deal with the establishment of a 
quasi student senate, separating 
the election of sophomore and 
freshman senators, and ridding 
one section of deadwood. 

Authored and introduced by 
sophomore senator Burt Wllkins, 
the three amendments were 
passed at the February 2 Senate 

In establishing the quasi senate, 
a section three would be added to 
Article III of the Constitution ta 
read: "The Quasi Student Senate 
shall exercise all those powers and 
duties granted to the Student Sen- 
ate. However, action taken or 
legislation passed by the Quasi 

Student Senate shall be subject 
to review if protested by one- 
fourth of the membership of the 
Student Senate. Meetings of the 
Quasi Student Senate shall be 
called at the discretion of the SGA 
President during a time period 
extending from the beginning of 
the Spring Term to the install- 
ment of the Freshman Senators. 
The membership of the Quasi 
Senate shall consist of all Sena- 
tors not graduating or elected to 
an SGA Executive Office." 

The purpose of this quasi senate 
is to have student representatives 
available to the SGA president for 
consultation during the summer 
months when the regular senate 
does not meet. 

The amendment concerning the 
separation of the election of fresh- 
man and sophomore senators 
changes Article III, Section 1, 
Item B to read: "Sophomore Sen- 
ators shall be elected by their

class in an SGA election to be held 
no later than the fourth Friday of 
the designated college term. 
Freshman Senators shall be elect- 
ed by their class in an SGA elec- 
tion two weeks later than the 
sophomore election. Notice of said 
elections shall be appropriately 
advertised throughout the campus 
at least one week before each 
election date." 

This amendment is designed to 
give incoming freshmen an oppor- 
tunity to become more interested 
in student government before de- 
ciding whether or not to run for 
the Senate. 

The third and final amendment 
is simply a housecleaning amend- 
ment calling for Article VI, Sec- 
tion 5 to be changed to read: "The 
President, Vice-President, Secre- 
tary, or Treasurer of the Student 
Government Association shall not 
be eligible to represent a student 
organization in the Student Sen- 

The part of the section prohibit- 
ing the officers from running for 
office in the freshman or sopho- 
more classes is being deleted since 
the two classes have not elected 
officers in several years. 

If passed by the student body, 
the three amendments will go to

to vote on the amendments. 

where she was treasurer of their 
Student Government Association. 

Kieidler, Rappoport, Weber 
and McConkey are running on 
the Pacer Party ticket, the other 
candidates are independent. 

Candidates are scheduled to 
give three-minute campaign 
speeches at 11:00 a.m. next 
Monday on the SAC patio, fol- 
lowed by a question and answer 

Voting takes place next 
Wednesday and Thursday. 

Circle K Cops 
Second Place 
At State Meet 

PBJC's Circle K service club re- 
ceived top honors in state-wide 
competition at the annual Circle 
K Florida District convention held 
in Daytona Beach last weekend. 

The club was awarded the J. N 
Emerson Award for cumulative 
service for the second consecutive 
year. Circle K amassed a total of " 
6,453 man hours of service to the 
campus and the community dur- 
ing the 1966-67 school year, as 
compared to 2,565 for the same 
period last year. 

Sophomore Burt Wllkins cap- 
tured first place in the oratorical 
contest, defeating contestants from 
Florida State University and the 
University of Miami, among 
others. Wil kins' subject was 
"Building Individual Leadership."

An Election - Where? 

"They can't see the forest for the trees." So many students 
are in the dark about the current campaigning for the SGA 
elections that we wonder how these unknowing students can 
find their way from class to class. 

These students walk the halls everyday, yet fail to notice 
even one of the hundreds of campaign posters that are scat- 
tered around the campus. Are they blind? Do they walk 
around looking at the ground directly in front of their feet? 

Whatever the reason for their failure to see the myriad 
of material before them, these students must come out of their 
incognizant stupor, and take an active part in the SGA elec- 
tions. The choice of SGA executive officers is the responsibility 
of every student, not just the same few who bear the weight 
of most student activities. 

You, the sightless student, cast off your blinders and 
participate in this election. It's your student government. 

Senate Cops Emmy 

If Emmy Awards were given for the smoothest running 
performances, last Thursday's Senate meeting would be an 
easy victor. 

The meeting, only twenty minutes long, was the shortest 
of the year and by far the best conducted. 

We cannot help but wonder why this meeting was so 
admirably conducted. Perhaps it was the presence of newly- 
ppointed Sergeant-at-Arms Frank Eberling, or the absence 
F outspoken Sophomore Senator Burt Wilkins, or the presence 
f several of the candidates for next year's SGA executive 

Whatever the reason, we hope the remaining Senate meet- 
ings will be conducted in a similar way. 

Yes We Will 

Over the past several weeks we have received numerous 
inquiries as to whether or not the Beachcomber will endorse 
candidates in the upcoming SGA elections.- The answer is a 
concrete yes. 

In next week's issue we will endorse candidates whom we 
believe will best serve student government and the students. 
The candidate for treasurer is unopposed and will receive only 
a vote of confidence from the students. 

The policy of the Beachcomber endorsing candidates for 
SGA offices is a controversial one, but it is our right and duty 
to have our say as to whom we think will best fill the offices 
at stake. 

The endorsement will be truthful and sincere and made 
mly after much consultation and discussion by members of 
le editorial staff. 


The Beachcomber Is published weekly throughout the fall 
and winter trimesters from our editorial offices in the Student 
Activity Center at Palm Beach Junior Collcsre, 4200 Congress 
Avenue, Lake W orth, Florida 33400. Phone 9G3-8000, Ext. 388

Spring Frolics Activities 
A Change From The Past 

by Frank Eberling 

'Comber Staff Writer 

With only 2% weeks until Spring 
Frolics, plans are now under way 
for an eventful weekend of enter- 
tainment, dancing, and fun. 

Jay and the Americans open 
Spring Frolics this year with a 
two-hour concert on Friday night. 
The concert is to be held in the 
gym in blanket style; that is, stu- 
dents may bring blankets to sit 
on the floor, or may sit on the 
bleachers. During the intermission, 
the winner of the Pacers' Pride 
Pageant will be announced and 

Saturday, concessions and ath- 
letic events are open to all stu- 
dents and their dates. 

Competitive events begin at 
10:30 with a pushball game spon- 
sored by the Beachcomber. Push- 
ball is played like soccer except 
a football is used. 

A road rally, sponsored by 
Circle-K begins at 11:45. 

Thi Del will hold a pie-eating 
contest just in time for desert at 
one o'clock. 

A Sebring in miniature will take 
place at 2:30 with a tricycle race 
sponsored by the Beachcomber. 
The race is of the endurance type 
and covers a grueling one mile for 

He Knew Better, 
Pays Extra Fine 

Recently a member of the 
campus police force, when ticket- 
ing a vehicle obviously illegally 
parked, wrote on the back of the 
citation, "You know better than 
to park here." 

When paying the one-dollar fine, 
the owner of the car sent to the 
finance office a check for $1.50 
accompanied by a note that read, 
"I do know better; therefore, I 
am fining myself an extra fifty 

The intentions of this student 
were laudatory; we wonder how 
the 'student-oriented' finance de- 
partment will handle this fifty 

women and two miles for men. All 
entrants are welcome in this free 
event, but must provide their own 
vehicles with front wheels under 

A greased pig chase sponsored 
by Thi Del, held on the Archery 
range, should prove to be a real 
slick event. 

All those who feel they have at- 
tractive knees will have a chance 
to prove it in the "Mr. Knees" 
contest, sponsored by the K-ettes. 
To be eligible, you must be a 
male with knees.

arrest everyone's attention will be

New Registration Plans 
Slated For Fall Term 

by Gayle McELroy 

'Comber Feature Editor 

Smile "pretty" the next time, 
you pass the new computer in the 
Data Processing Building, and 

Florida State U. 

Here March 17 

Dr. Thomas M. Campbell Jr., 
director of the MA III Program at 
Florida State University, will be 
in the guidance center Friday, 
March 17, from 10:00 to 12:30. 

Dr. Campbell is to talk to in- 
terested students about FSU's 
master's program in the following 
fields: English, government, his- 
tory, mathematics, modern lan- 
guage, philosophy, biological sci- 
ences, psychology, economics, 
humanities and international re- 

He will conduct two group dis- 
cussions, one at 10 a.m. and an- 
other at 12:00. From 10:30 to 12:30 
students may make individual ap- 
pointments to see him by contact- 
ing Mrs. Broyles in the guidance 

under no circumstances drop any 
derogatory statements; for this 
little man-made machine has been 
nominated to accept or reject in- 
dividual registration cards for the 
fall term. 

According to PBJC Registrar, 
Elbert Bishop, computers are to 
be used "more than ever before" 
to reduce the waiting lines during 

"The major difference from the 
present system," Bishop added, 
"is that when students are coun- 
seled for the fall term, March 27- 
August 21, instructor and subject 
choices will be placed on IBM 

The cards are then taken to the 
computer for punching. If any 
time slots, courses, or teachers 
are closed out that card will be 
rejected. The Registrar com- 
mented that, "Teacher choice may 
or may not be possible. You can 
try, but you may not get them. It 
is not yet definite." 

Bishop, registrar for the past 30 
years, explained the new method 
to be merely "experimental" and 
students have everything to gain

Kuchar Comes To PBJC 
From Cold Griffith, Indiana 

Why would Wally Kuchar leave 
Griffith, Indiana for PBJC? 

One of the brighter figures in 
this year's spring sports has been 
freshman golfer Wally Kuchar. Be- 
sides winning numerous tourna- 
ments in the past, Wally is pres- 
ently leading the team in total 
points with an impressive 16% 
points out of a possible 24. 

When asked what made him de- 
cide to leave Indiana for PBJC, 
his reply was, "I wanted to play 
golf all year round and at the 
same time obtain a good educa- 
tion here in Florida where some- 
day I hope to reside."

,, , -I. 


Upon graduating from PBJC, 
Wally plans to attend the Uni- 
versity of Florida and hopes to 
become a professional golfer. 

The golf team now stands at 
3 wins against 5 defeats. Wally 
feels that "the team has been im- 
proving steadily, and we should 
finish the season with a winning

Although the record doesn't show it, the Pacers have one fine 
baseball team this year. 

Coach Stockton scoured the county and came up with the pick 
of the litter. Eleven players are All-County selections, and most of them 
were all-stars in American Legion play. 

Because most of the team is made up of freshmen, it will probably 
be a while before they really get together. But when they do, watch out. 

I predict that the baseball team will produce the first winning 
record in a major sport for dear old PBJC. 
* * * 

Why don't we have intramural swimming? If we lived in North 
Dakota or Alaska there would be a good excuse, but we are in the 
land of sunshine with many good high school swimmers attending the 
college and not even a hint of a program. 

Nancy Barnette, a top swimmer from Lake Worth High, says that 
the Lake Worth Swim Association gave its permission to use the pool 
located at Lake Worth High if the college could get a program started, 
w * * 

Coach Harris McGirt says that the school will furnish racquets for 
the tennis courses, starting next fall. This should open the course up 
for many students who couldn't afford the equipment before. 

McGirt says that there are four sections now and that they are 
closed out on the first day of registration. This is unfair to students 
who have to register on die following days. 

With our great weather, tennis is a year-round sport here in 
Florida. It is also listed by the President's Council on Physical Fitness 
as one of the top three lifetime sports. Swimming and golf are the 
other two. 

It seems to me that if the experts in Washington think that tennis 
is good for everyone then the PE department ought to put more 
emphasis on it, too. 

* * • 

A lot of people have been complaining about having to buy white 
uniforms for the tennis class. I agree that if it is an extra expense 
the students should be allowed to use their regular PE uniforms. 

But, I think that the tennis uniform thing is covering up an even 
greater issue. 

It is called creeping uniformism. I think that the department is 
really aiming at the archery class through tennis. I heard the other 
day that someone was trying to sell the school little green suits, and 
little green hats with feathers in them. 

Well, that's the way to do it Start off small and go to bigger 
and better things. 

* * * 

I noticed that the Miami-Dade North baseball team was "invited" 
to a banquet held in honor of the Baltimore Orioles. 

I have the feeling that the team probably asked to be invited. This 
is what is called public relations. Something that PBJC lacks for its 
intercollegiate program. 

I talked to a high school coach recently who didn't even know that 
the college participated in Intercollegiate activities. 

We have a gold mine of publicity in West Palm Beach called the 
Atlanta Braves. 

I have talked to them and they say that they are always glad to 
help local schools in any way that they can. 

May we suggest that our Athletic Director follow suit. 

It would really help the school to have a banquet in honor of the 
Braves and invite all the local high schools to it. This sort of thing lets 
the coaches and players know that PBJC is serious about athletics. 

Many youngsters in the area give me the impression that they 
think the school has a "Mickey Mouse" athletic program. They are 
wrong, but who can prove it?

Emotional Senate Meeting 
Erupts Over Resolution 

by Raul Ramirez 

'Comber News Editor 

Last week's emotion-packed stu- 
dent senate meeting was climaxed 
oy an act unparalled in the his- 
tory of PBJC's legislative body. 

In a fit of anger, sophomore sen- 
ator and President Pro Temp of 
the senate Burt Wilkins spat at 
publications senator Dave Dou- 
cette before a group of stunned 
senators, visitors, and advisers. 

Wilkins' spectacular outburst 
followed Doucette's presentation 
of a resolution censoring the out- 
spoken senator for having refer- 
red to the senate President and 
several senators with "derogatory 
and character defaming remarks." 

The Saxons 
To Play At 
Chi Sig Dance 

With the excitement and prepa- 
ration of Spring Frolics ringing 
in the halls, Chi Sig will provide 
the student body with a pre- 
Frolics dance featuring the Saxons 
tomorrow night in the SAC lounge 
from 8 to 12 p.m. 

Door prizes will be awarded at 
the free event. 

Doucette's first attempt to pre- 
sent the resolution was abruptly- 
interrupted by strong protests 
from freshman senator Dave Par- 
ker, who objected to what he 
labeled as "obscene language" al- 
legedly contained in the proposed 

Senator Doucette was puzzled 
by Parker's protests: "Even if 
the text of the resolution had been 
obscene, which it certainly was 
not," he told this reporter, "He 
(Parker) could not have known its 
content before I read it to the 
senate, as the resolution was 
worded only minutes before the 

Only after Parker was called 
to order by the senate prexy 
Sherry Kallioinen was Doucette 
able to conclude his reading. 

An attempt was made to waive 
the rules of order and allow for 
discussion and the final vote dur- 
ing the same meeting. The rules 
of order require that a resolution 
be read three titties before a vote 
is taken. Discussion is „ allowed 
only after the second reading and 
voting takes place following the 
final reading. The motion to waive 
the rules was defeated, however, 
and discussion thus postponed until

SGA Prexy Endorses 
Pacer Party Candidates 

In an exclusive interview with the Beachcomber, Student Govern- 
ment Association President Chuck Massey presented his endorsement 
of candidates in today and tomorrow's election. _ 

The Beachcomber feels that the endorsements of the President of 
SGA is significant because he has worked with and observed the 

The text of the message follows: 

"In the past there has not been a precedent set for endorsement by 
the Student Government Association President or any other SGA officer 
—at least openly. 

"However, due to the growing significance and demands placed upon 
the Executive Department of student government, I feel it is necessary 
to give a personal opinion as to those I feel most qualified to fill 
these positions. . „ ... 

"The candidates running on the Pacer Party ticket— Frank Kreidler, 
Joel Rappoport Joyce Weber, and Vicki McConkey-have a range of 
experience and a record of achievement that has rarely been equaled 
among candidates in the past. 

"All four have had considerable experience in parliamentary prc- 
cedure-a vital necessity, especially for vice-presidential candidate 
Joel Rappoport, since his main job will be that of presiding over next 
year's senate. Pacer Party candidate for treasurer, Vicki McConkey, is 
the immediate past treasurer of the Student Government Association at 
Indian River Junior College. 

"Joyce Weber has been an active asset to the Senate this year. 
She has served on the Leadership and Service Board and various com- 
mittees within the Senate. In addition to her knowledge of and experi- 
ence in the Senate, she is presently Business Manager of the Beachcomber. 

"Frank Kreidler, leading the Pacer Party ticket is probably the 
most well-versed freshman senator His service on senate committees 
and executive boards qualifies him as a leading contender for this 

S "« is my sincerest hope that the individual student will weigh these 
recommendations very carefully. 

"This year the Executive Department has initiated many new pro- 
grams into the college life of PBJC. We have sponsored many more 
extracurricular activities this year than in the past, and Spnng Frolics 
promises to be a fitting end for such a year. In essence many programs 
have been initiated, but their continuance depends largely on the choice 
made at the polls."

Our Endorsement 

Endorsing candidates for the offices of the SGA Executive 
Department may cause many to disagree with us, but we feel 
that it is our duty to our readers to suggest the candidates we 
believe best qualified to serve you. 

After reviewing the candidates, their qualifications, plat- 
forms, and achievements, we believe that the four Pacer Party 
candidates are most capable of representing and serving the 
students of PBJC. These candidates have better overall qualifi- 
cations and possess more governmental ability than their 

Frank Kreidler, Pacer Party presidential candidate, pos- 
sesses more of the qualities necessary to serve as SGA president 
than his opponent, Dave Parker. He has the knowledge of 
governmental procedures and the image of a student leader 
that cannot be duplicated by Parker. In addition, Kreidler is 
more mature and can better control his emotions; something 
Parker has not been able to do in the past week's activities. 

Pacer Party candidate fox vice-president, Joel Rappoport, 
was not involved in student government here this year, but his 
experience in that field (president ot die student body at 
Riviera Beach High School and Boy's State delegate) and his 
leadership capabilities greatly overshadow his opponent, John 

Alexander, as Senate parliamentarian, has had trouble con- 
vincing the Senate that he possesses any knowledge of parlia- 
mentary procedure, let alone presenting a leader image before 
the lawmakers. We believe that Rappoport's experience and 
leadership would be the prescription needed to cure the 
Senate's ills. 

Joyce Weber, Pacer Party candidate for secretary, not only 
las the required clerical qualifications to fill the office she 
eeks, but has had the experience as a freshman senator neces- 
sary to aid her in the decisions she will have to make as a 
voting member of the Executive Department and President's 
Cabinet. Her opponent, Karen Dupere, may have the clerical 
qualifications to serve as secretary, but she falls far short of 
Miss Weber in the much needed area of governmental 

Pacer Party candidate for treasurer, Vicki McConkey, 
while unopposed, is perhaps most qualified to fulfill her office. 

The Pacer Party candidates, aside from being more quali- 
fied, are more united in their platform and goals than their 
opponents who appear to be running side by side, but not 
together. These candidates are more cohesive and represent a 
wide range of students. 

On January 12 the Student Senate passed a resolution to be 
sent to the Palm Beach County legislative delegation in Talla- 
hassee recommending the approval of that portion of the new 
constitution extending the right to vote to those above the 
age of 18. 

The Beachcomber assumes that the Senate was expressing 
he general feelings of the student body in this action. 

If students won't even vote in their own elections why 
lould they be allowed to vote in civil elections?

Which Will It 
Be For Us? 

The Student Activity Committee was recently 
asked by the faculty senate to investigate the 
methods used by other junior colleges to provide 
transportation for college representatives when 

Dean Robert Moss, chairman of the commit- 
tee, reported to the Beachcomber that the junior 
colleges contacted furnished transportation in 
three ways: 1.) a car is purchased by the college, 
2.) the college receives a courtesy car, or 3.) the 
cars are rented as needed. 

Moss further stated that the results will be 
given to the faculty senate. 

Whatever the decision of the faculty senate 
we hope they consider purchasing cars or procur- 
ing courtesy cars, instead of renting them as is 
done now. We tend to believe that automobiles 
bought by the college or courtesy cars would be 
best for PBJC's needs.

Doucette after the meeting. 

Doucette said he was compelled 
to write the resolution after hear-

names," and after witnessing as 
Wilkins called another senator a

kins' overt disregard for anybody 
and anything in his way should

A resolution of censure is a way 
of showing that the senate disap- 
proves of a person's actions, and 
entails no further punishment.

Candidate Claims 
Foul By Comber 

March 22, 1967 Page 3 


Candidate for SGA president, 
Dave Parker, claimed that the 
Beachcomber had ruined a half- 
page advertisement in last week's 
issue by not inserting additional 
copy turned in by himself after 
the regular deadline for ad copy. 

He claimed this, despite the fact 
that the contract was not signed 
by himself, but by Burt Wilkins, 
and that the ad that appeared and 
met the agreed deadline was 
turned in by Wilkins. 

The next morning, Friday, Par- 
ker asked 'Comber Advertising 
Manager Ron Bates if it was still 
possible to turn in more copy for 
the ad. Bates pointed out that it 
was past the deadline but perhaps 
the copy could be added. 

That afternoon Parker asked 
'Comber Editor Dave Doucette 
when the additional copy, more 
of his platform, had to be in and 
if it would fit. Not having to ac- 
cept the additional copy, but try- 

Boftosto Asks 
Parking Fee 
For AH Cars 

Dr. Samuel Bottosto, presented 
a proposal to the Faculty Senate 
for additional financial aid to 

The proposal states that all ve- 
hicles registered on the campus, 
excluding those belonging to non- 
instructional and cafeteria employ- 
ees, display a parking permit de- 
cal at the cost of $1.00 per vehicle, 
to be collected and earmarked for 
the Work-Study Aid Program. 

This would be a one-time fee, 
payable in any term for each park- 
ing permit deca!. It was suggested 
that this program commence with 
the fall term, 1967. 

The motion will require two 
readings. Mr. Payne moved to 
strike the words "excluding those 
vehicles belonging to non-instruc- 
tional and cafeteria employees." 


The election story in last week's 
issue stated that John Alexander, 
candidate for SGA vice-president, 
"was recently Senate Parliamen- 
tarian." The statement should 
have said that Alexander "was re- 
cently appointed Senate Parlia- 

Apparal for all Occasions

ing to accommodate the candidate, 
Doucette said that if the copy was 
in before five that afternoon he 
would try to fit it into the ad. 

Doucette added that he wouldn't 
know if the additional material 
would fit until the copy was taken 
to the printer. He said that he 
would rearrange the ad some if 
necessary, but did not guarantee 
Parker that the additional copy 
would fit. Parker agreed. 

When the ad was assembled at 
the print shop the additional ad 
copy would not fit. 

Last Wednesday, when the 
'Comber appeared minus the addi- 
tional copy, Parker, his running- 
mate, John Alexander, and Burt 
Wilkins, the signer of the contract, 
stormed into the Beachcomber 
offices boisterously protesting the 
omission of the extra ad copy. 

Whether we believe it or not, we 
went along with the old adage 
that the customer is right, and 
granted Parker the column inches 
of advertising space to state the 
part of the platform that was 



"Let's try to think of a 
Pacer's Pride this week . . .", 
or so the story went in the 
Beachcomber Office. 

Then everyone decided we 
had one in our midst— Karen 
Schmidt, faithful copy editor 
of the 'Comber, K-ette, and 
dental hygiene major. 

Karen, 20, graduated from 
Fort Lauderdale High School 
where she busied herself 
working on the yearbook. At 
PBJC Karen is busy too, what 
with going steady with "El- 
liott," her 1947 Packard lim- 

And that, guys, is pretty

Three Amendments To SGA Constitution On Ballot 
For Approval In Today And Tomorrow's Election 

Three amendments to the SGA 
constitution are on the ballot in 
today and tomorrow's SGA 

The three proposed amendments 
deal with the establishment of a 
quasi-student senate, separating 
the election of sophomore and 
freshman senators, and ridding 
one section of deadwood. 

In establishing the quasi-senate, 
a section three would be added 
to Article III to the Constitution 
to read: "The Quasi-Student Sen- 
ate shall exercise all those powers 
and duties granted to the Student 
Senate. However, action taken or 
legislation passed by the Quasi- 
Senate shall be subject to re- 
view if protested by one-fourth 
of the membership of the Student 
Senate. Meetings of the Quasi- 
Student Senate shall be called at 
the discretion of the SGA Presi- 
dent during a time period extend- 
ing from the beginning of the 
Spring Term to the installment of 
the Freshman Senators. The mem- 
bership of the Quasi-Senate shall 
consist of all Senators not gradu- 

ating or elected to an SGA Execu- 
tive Office." 

The purpose of this quasi-senate 
is to have student representatives 
available to the SGA president for 
consultation during the summer 
months when the regular senate 
does not meet. 

The amendment concerning the 
separation of the election of fresh- 
man and sophomore senators 
changes Article III, Section I, Item 
B to read: "Sophomore Senators 
shall be elected by their class in 
an SGA election to be held no 
later than the fourth Friday of 
the designated college term. 
Freshman Senators shall be 
elected by Their class in an SGA 

election two weeks later than the 
sophomore election. Notice of said 
elections shall be appropriately 
advertised throughout the campus 
at least one week before each 
election date." 

This amendment is designed to 
give incoming freshmen an oppor- 
tunity to become more interested 
in student government before de- 
ciding whether or not to run for 

the Senate. 

The third and final amendmer 
is simply a housecleaning amenc 
ment calling for Article VI, Se< 
tion 5 to be changed to read: "Tb 
President, Vice-President, Secrc 
tary, or Treasurer of the Student 
Government Association shall not 
be eligible to represent a student 
organization in the Student

Palm Beach Junior College has 
a tradition of being an excellent 
academic college, 'ihis is tine as 
far as it goes, but its academic 
standing isn't the only thing a 
college is judged by. When you 
consider going to college you 
weigh many things: scholastic 
standings, location, sports pro- 
gram, cost, and opportunities to 
\ave a good time while learning. 
The location of the school is 
Dut the only thing over which 
u have no control. The other 
•tors, scholastic standing, cost, 
orts, enjoyment, and job oppor- 
aiities can be directly influenced 
y the student. 

My platform is simply, I know 
the students want more big name 
activities for their money, not 
high school dances, better jobs 
that still enable them to continue 
school, and a strong student gov- 
ernment backing up the students'

my time serving on three com-

of a temporary committee and

Today and tomorrow you will 
be asked to select the member- 
ship of next year's Executive De- 
partment. The potential achieve- 
ments of this SGA Administration 
will depend upon the quality, sin- 
cerity, and experience of those 
candidates chosen to serve. It is 
my belief that every candidate has 
a responsibility to present him- 
self, his record, and his ideas to 
the people. The privilege to run 
for an elected office is both an 
honor and a responsibility. 

As a responsibility, no candi- 
date of the people that elect him 
should take this matter lightly. 
Having accepted the criteria and 
the responsibility of seeking office, 
I ask you to consider my qualifi- 
cations and vote on the election 
days. I also hope that you'll vote 
for me, Dave Parker, for SGA 
President, YOUR representative. 

There are many issues of gov- 
ernment to be handled this and 
next year. In last week's issue 
you saw only half of my platform. 
My platform emphasized unity. 
Through each point you will ob- 
serve the student body becoming 
a little more unified. 

Perhaps if we can unite the 
student body, working together 
for the gain of all, we can get 
rid of the school's label, "apathy"! 
Apathy is a word that I personally 
would like to have forgotten on 

Students, this is my goal, and 
what I would like to see accom 
plished next year. With your sup- 
port, we can do it!

need for qualified and competent

STRIKE THREE! Pacer pitcher Reiho Aho fires a strike to 
Harold Wise during last week's game against Indian River 
Junior College. The Pacers lost, 4-0. 

by Kent Mitchell 

I've spent four-an-a-half hours trying to find something good to say 
and haven't thought of anything yet, so I'll begin with bad news. 

The Pacer pitching staff is down to three men this week. Last week 
there were five, but one quit and the other one is sick. 

This puts the team in good shape to play six games in seven days. 

It also puts me in good shape after the prediction that I made last 
week about a winning season. 

I hope that Blue Cross covers foot in mouth disease. 

We have lost quite a few scholarship players this year. Some from 
grades and some from injury; but the boys who dropped off the baseball 
team just quit for no reason. 

I hope that they enjoy the money that the school gave them at the 
first of the year. 

I hope that the people who donated the scholarship money don't 
give up on us just because a couple of guys can't cut it. 

There are a lot more who are sticking with it, even though the going 
is pretty rough right now. 

If we had a few more like Harry Wise on the team, then things 
might be better, but you can only judge a player by his ability at first, 
not his attitude. 

Harry would make All-American if attitude was the main factor.

I've just come up with a bright, outstanding (pardon my modesty) 
idea on how to save a little money in our tennis program. 

It costs about $700 a semester to pay for membership fees to allow 
the team to practice and play matches off campus. 

We have the beginnings of a tennis court on campus, but it is not 
complete. The three c6urts available now are good for singles only, and 
can't accommodate a match. The nets aren't exactly regulation either. 
They are volleyball nets. 

But to get back to the original idea. Why not use the money spent 
on membership fees to expand the existing facilities here? 

The tennis program is going to grow now that the PE department 
is furnishing racquets, and we will need extra space anyway. 

And another thing to consider is the money saved. The school will 
get two things for the same amount of money. A new tennis court and 
a gr6at tennis team. 

The way things stand now we will have to pay more for membership 
fees in the years to come because tennis season happens to come 
around at exactly the same time that tourist season does. 

The school is in a bad position competing with the tourists.

Kudos to Miss Mclntyre for the job she is doing in girls* golf and 

She is the only coach I know of who handles two I-C sports at the 
same rime. 

I don't know how she does it.

Band Performs In 
Auditorium Tonight 

by Dave Doucette 

•Comber IS<lltor-In-Clilef 

In an election that saw nearly 
950 students vote, independent 
Dave Parker won a close victory 
over Frank Kreidler, Pacer Party 
candidate, in the race for SGA 
president last week. The vote was 
463 to 3S5. 

Joel Rappoport, the Pacer Party 
candidate, defeated independent 
John Alexander for the vice-presi- 
dency by a 472 to 378 vote. 

Independent Karen Dupere 
edged Pacer Party candidate 
Joyce Weber 427 to 416 for the 
office of secretary. Unopposed 
Pacer Party candidate for treas- 
urer, Vicki McConkey, received 
715 votes. 

All three of the constitutional 
amendments on the ballot were 
approved by the voters. 

The first amendment passed by 
a 575 to 231 vote, deleted the sec-

elected officers in recent years. 

The second amendment, con- 
cerning the rescheduling of the 
freshman senate elections two 
weeks after the sophomore senate

The purpose of this amendment is

Two weeks ago, a resolution was introduced to the Senate 
censuring sophomore senator Burt Wilkins for calling several 
young ladies filthy names to their faces in the presence of 
others and referring to another Senate member with a deroga- 
tory ethnic term. 

During that meeting, Wilkins further insulted the members 
of the Senate by using foul language and obscene gestures on 
the Senate floor, culminating the long chains of insults by spit- 
ting on the Senator introducing the resolution of censure. 

Because of his actions, Wilkins was brought up for im- 
peachment at last week's Senate meeting. Final vote on the 
impeachment procedures will be taken tomorrow. 

Some Senators have attempted to cloud the issue on hand 
by claiming it is a result of personal animosities towards 
Wilkins on the part of some fellow senators. 

The issue, nevertheless, is clear cut: Either your elected 
representatives approve of this type of behavior on the PBJC 
campus, or they condemn it. 

The next issue of the Beachcomber will inform the student 
body the stand taken by each Senator. 

The way in which these representatives vote will set a 
precedent as to how the student Senate wishes its members 
and the student body to conduct themselves in the future. 

A Yes vote will mean that the Senate will not tolerate 
this type of behavior. A No vote will condone it and preserve 
it on our campus. 

Those people who do not have the conviction to take a 
firm stand and seek an escape by abstaining will be voicing 
their approval through their lack of action. 

A New Constitution 

The passage of several amendments to the SGA consti- 
tution has caused the copy of the document in the student 
handbook to become outdated. 

Since no more amendments can be passed this year, the 
Student Senate should draw up a revised copy of the consti- 
tution for the handbook. 

Several senators are striving to better communicate with 
the students. One of the best ways we know of is to supply 
the students with an updated copy of the constitution. 

Happy Together 

The SGA executive department for next year is equally 
divided politically, with two candidates from each "group" 
being elected. 

In planning for the upcoming year, we hope that the four 
new officers can overlook their differences and combine 
efforts to keep the Student Government Association on the rise. 

If SGA is to progress properly, the officers must bind

Burt Reynolds Returns To JC; 
Tells The Failure Of 'Hawk' 

by Frank Eberling 

'Comber Staff Writer 

Burt Reynolds, star of TV's 
hard-hitting detective series 
'Hawk," appeared Monday night 
in the auditorium. 

Reynolds, a former PBJC stu- 
dent, showed films and slides while 
delivering his story of "The Life 
and Death of a TV Show," The 
story, presented informally by 
Reynolds was centered around the 
success of the series "Hawk." 
" 'Hawk' was a critical success," 
Reynolds states, "But being oppo- 
site the Dean Martin Show and 
Thursday Night at the Movies, it 
didn't have much of a chance." In 
the series Reynolds played an In- 
dian police detective in New York 

When Reynolds graduated from 
nigh school, his main ambition in 
life was to be a football player. 
After receiving an injury while 
playing for Florida State Univer- 
sity, Reynolds started attending 
PBJC. One day while sitting in 
Watson B. Duncan's English lit- 
erature class, Duncan pointed to 
him and said, "You're going to 
be the lead in our next play!" 
Reynolds at the time had no inten- 
tions at all about acting, but ac- 
cepted the challenge and went on 
to win the PBJC Best Actors 

From there Reynolds went on 
to Broadway and finally to his 
first TV series, "Riverboat." 

From 1963 to '65, Burt played 
Quint on "Gunsmoke," in what 
he called "the happiest two years 
of my life." 

Following this he was called to 
New York by Screen Gems to 
star in their new series, "Hawk." 

When "Hawk" was dropped 
from ABC's programming for bad 
Nielson Ratings, Reynolds' many 
fans showed their loyalty by writ- 
ing thousands of letters and stag- 
ing a parade in front of ABC stu- 
dios in New York, and Reynolds 
was offered thirteen different parts 
for new shows next fall. 

In the second half of Monday 
night's program, Reynolds showed 
the pilot film for his new series, 
"Lassiter," which hopefully will 
begin in the fall. Pete Lassiter is 
a writer for "Contrast" magazine, 
who each week visits a new town 
under a false pretense and an as- 
sumed name to expose through 
his stories a variety of corrupt 
practices. One week he would 
visit a midwestern town to ex- 
pose a dishonest police force. An- 
other week he would join Hell's 
Angels or travel to Boston to take 
a phony cancer cure t . 

When asked about the probable 
success of the new series, Rey- 
nolds replied, "Lassiter is a tough, 
cocky, indignant, anti-hero type 
character. The public likes the 
Petticoat Junction type character, 
and for this reason the show will 
probably fail. Actually, I feel the 
show is too good for TV." 

The pilot showed "Lassiter" to 
be a fast moving show with lots 
of action, and a plausible story 
line. Lassiter is a cigarette-smok- 

Mrs. Peed Attends 
English Conference 

Mrs. Dorothy Peed of the Eng- 
lish Department will attend the 
Conference of English Education 
in Athens, Georgia on March 30, 
31 and April 1. 

A portion of the conference will 
be a seminar of Informed Discus- 
sion of Research in English Edu- 

ing journalist with plenty of drive 
and cool. It will be an injustice 
if it does not make the air. 

Reynolds, who has starred in 
over 250 TV shows, numerous 
plays and pictures, is an interest- 
ing individual, easy to talk with. 
He is not the type of Hollywood 
star that forgets his old friends or 
is "too busy" to talk with. He 
said, "although I feel I have abso- 
lutely no obligation to anything 
except a good performance, I thor- 
oughly enjoy signing autographs 
and talking to most reporters." 
He does, however, dislike the pulp 
magazine reporters who report

Dear Editor: 

I was a typical apathetic junior 
college student. I really wasn't 
aware of the SGA and its actions. 
Yesterday the Senate circus 
reared its ugly head. I heard ru- 
mors of unacceptable conduct by 
a student senator. 

It seems appalling to me that 
actions as gross as these coming 
from an elected representative of 
our school could go by— appar- 
ently without punishment. 

As a spectator of the last SGA 
Senate meeting, it is apparent 
that certain senators are governed 
more by certain factions rather 
than objective opinions in the best 
interest of the school. 

Perhaps we should remind these 
senators that they are responsible

wonder how many can say this in

Senate. When actions occur which 
are as obscene and vile as actions 
by Senator Wilkins— whether on

the Senate has the responsibility 
of guarding or prohibiting such 

His acts are a "direct reflec-

in last week's Senate meeting— 
upon every student at PBJC. 

I will be attending the next Sen-

in hopes that these "elected repre- 
sentatives" will be more objective 
and more aware of their duty to

Reynolds' delivery was familiar 
and enjoyably humorous througJi- 
out both the presentation and In- 
terview. He is a natural comedian. 
When asked if he ever considered 
doing a comedy series he repifei 
"I've often thought of it, but tv>

Asked to give some advice to 
aspiring actors, Reynolds said, 
"The only way to learn to act ti

but by acting." 

Although he feels his favorite 
form of acting is in the theater, bs

Gym Is Scene for 
^Blanket Party' fest 

Lots of guys born in desperate 
poverty lower their horns and 
break through the jungle to find 
recognition and fame— some find- 
ing partners along the way with 
whom they can share the spot- 
light. But JAY AND THE AMERI- 
CANS share among them the satis- 
faction of realizing an ambition 
that began together as kids in New 
York, and that has blossomed to- 
gether as adults in the entertain- 
ment world. 

They played on the streets of 
Brooklyn and ran together in 
gangs where street fights and 
trouble with the local police were 
commonplace, but at night when 
they sat around on the stoops of 
the tenements they sang together, 
and there the seed of their ambi- 
tion was planted. Their voices 
blended beautifully together, many 
times causing strangers to stop 
and listen. They found they shared 
the same enthusiasm for singing, 
and the same conviction that 
America offered unlimited oppor- 
tunities for all who were willing 
to work — and, they were willing. 
They began a series of 'candy 
store concerts' to establish a feel- 
ing of communication with as 
udience. They haunted the pawn 
>ps, and took odd jobs to get 
aey for singing and dancing 
sons. They rehearsed in base- 
its and vacant lots — until 

finally, remembering their convic- 
tions, named their group JAY 
out to seek their fortune. This 
was in late 1961. 

The first year's itinerary in- 
cluded school functions, small 
clubs and local parties where two 
purposes were accomplished. 
First, they were eager to see the 
reaction from paying audiences — 
which was overwhelming, to say 
the least— and second, to earn 
enough money between them to 
cut their first record. 

In the spring of 1962, they cut a 
dub "She Cried," and presented 
it to United Artists, who immedi- 
ately signed the group to a long- 
term contract. "She Cried" was 
released and became an instant 
hit, soon climbing to the number 
one spot m the country. During 
the following three years, JAY 
more work coming in than they 
could handle. They were booked 
into the normal one-nighter cir- 
cuits, adult night clubs, television 
and college concert tours. "We 
could never afford to go to col- 
lege," Jay recalls humorously, 
"now we can buy one." 

They worked hard at every op- 
portunity to further their talents 
and to broaden their scope. They 
added show tunes, standards, and 
quite a bit of comedy to their

artists. Students may sit on bleachers or take advantage of placing blankets on the floor. The 
group starts the activities for the fourth annual Frolics. 

act, finding time, however, to re- 
lease four more big hit records. 

Sammy Davis Jr., after working 
on a TV show with the group, 
became so impressed with their 
personalities and their talent that 
he brought them on the "Tonight" 
show as his special guests. In- 
stead of singing one of the latest 
hits, they sang "Cara Mia," and 
broke up the house. The reaction 
was so great, United Artists 
agreed to let them do this on their 
next record session. By combining 
a beautiful big-voiced vocal per- 
formance by Jay, some harmonies 
by the Americans, and a vibrant 
rock beat, JAY AND THE AMERI- 
CANS came up with one of the 
great impact records of 1965. 

"Cara Mia" opened even an- 
other door for the boys, the most 
prestigious area of the entertain- 
ment world, the musical theatre. 
They accepted as both a challenge 
and pleasure, roles specially writ- 
ten for them in "Bye Bye Birdie," 
where they received not only great 
reviews but the Summer Stock 
Award for their singing and com- 
edy ability. 

They've come a long way from 
the 'Candy Store Concerts,' but 
they are still the same kids who 
played stick-ball in the streets of 
Brooklyn and sang on the stoops 
of the tenements with their big 
dreams and high hopes. "We still 
have a long way to go," Sandy 
admits, "but we're going to make 
it all the way— TOGETHER." 

Jay Black, 25 years old, 6' tall, 
like his partners has had a rough 
life, peppered with profanity, 
bookies and a struggle to eat. The 
lead singer, he is super-talented, 
handsome— of the sultry, up-tight 
Vince-Edwards variety, and has 
the capacity to send chills up the 
spine of those listening to his 
beautiful full baritone voice. 

Sandy Deane, 23 years old, 6' 
tall, is the most serious one of 
the group. He is polite, consider- 
ate and intelligent, and aside from 
singing up a storm, is an excellent 
song writer. 

Marty Saunders, 24 years old, 
6*1", also invaluable in the song 
writing department, is a Gary 
Lockwood look-alike. He has col- 

laborated on writing some of their 
past hits, and besides having a 
great sense of humor and quick 
wit, possesses an extremely beau- 
tiful voice. 

Howie Kane, 22 years old, is 5'9" 
and is the bachelor in the group. 
Howie loves girls, and girls love 
Howie. A romanticist at heart, he 
found singing with his childhood 

pals preferable to following in ht; 
father's business as the nelgh!w| 
hood mortician. 

Kenny Vance, 22 years old d 
6'2" tall, possesses a youthK 
charm. His long, lean body xi 
good looks add to his exuberant 
appeal. Kenny, along with it 
others, is responsible for matj 
of their song writing success*

rday Night 


indents At Dance 

They call themselves The 
-r* ur tles, but in the short time that 
they've been a part of the popular 
music scene, their pace has been 
more the opposite of the crawl 
characteristic of their namesake. 

They snot ""to national promi- 
nence with their first record, "It 
Ain't Me, Babe." Within a month 
after its release they were star- 
ring on top TV variety shows like 
"Hollywood A Go Go," "Shiva- 
ree," "Lloyd Thaxton Show," and 
"Where The Action Is." Two 
months after their debut song hit 
the airwaves, they were headlin- 
ing at Hollywood's noted Crescen- 
do Tiger Tail, and featured per- 
formers on two Herman's Hermits 
Shows in Los Angeles and San 
Francisco. They wound up an ac- 
tion-packed summer with guest 
star billing on The Dick Clark 
Caravan cross-country tour. 

All this is just the beginning 
for the six young men who started 
their career at Reb Foster's Rev- 
elaire Club in Redondo Beach — 
Southern California's most popu- 
lar teenage nightspot. Howard 
Kaylan, Al Nichol, Charles Portz, 
Mark Volman, Don Murray and 
Jim Tucker auditioned for the 
Revelaire and were immediately 
signed as the Club's regular band. 
Last June, they officially adopted 
the name, The Turtles, and shortly 
afterwards musical entrepreneur, 
Foster, invited them to headline 
his Celebrity Night at Hollywood's 
popular Red Velvet Club. They 
were so well received that Foster, 
who i s the group's advisor, steered 
theon to White Whale, a new disk- 
er V. They are managed by close 
friend and confident, Bill Utley. 

The Turtles proved to be a 
four leaf clover for their label — 
an< 2 they've been spinning the 
sar ne kind of music wherever they 
w °rk in contemporary music 

Howard Kaylan who was born in 
New York City on June 22 and 

moved to Los Angeles at nine, 
plays saxophone, clarinet, tambou- 
rine and harmonica, in addition 
to his vocal talents. His ambition 
was always to be a singer, and 
before he joined up with his Turtle 
teammates, he performed for 
three years in a rock n' roll band, 
and worked as a disc jockey on a 
Los Angeles Top-40 station. He 
graduated from high school in Los 
Angeles, and attended the Uni- 
versity of California for a year 
before the urge to devote his full 
time to show business took hold. 
"I couldn't fight it any more; 
I'm basically a ham at heart," 
he explains. 

Howard is five-foot-ten, weighs 
175 pounds, has brown eyes and 
brown hair and when he is not 
working, he writes songs; spins 
Bob Dylan, The Ventures, The 
Rolling Stones and Tchaikovsky 
records; goes to the movies — 
especially those featuring Paul 
Newman and Natalie Wood— and 
is an avid football fan. He lives 
In a contemporary-styled home in 
Los Angeles, likes cold chili and 
steak (medium rare), and is a nut 
for weird vests and unusual shirts. 
A bachelor, he digs "wild and 
wooly parties," and "the company 
of young ladies who are above 
all, able to understand my many 
moods. Looks and personality 
come second." One day he hopes 
to tour all of the United States 
and England. 

Jim Tucker, who is also an ac- 
complished guitarist and harmon- 
ica player, was born in Santa 
Ana, California, October 17. As a 
youngster his goal was to be a 
musician. He graduated from high 
school in Santa Ana, and per- 
formed in many concerts and as 
a recording artist before he set- 
tled down with the other Turtles. 
Jim is six-foot, tips the scales at 
157, has brown hair and brown 
eyes. He likes cooking his own 
steaks, surfing and most sports. 

Currently, he lives in a com- 
fortable pad in Manhattan Beach, 
California. For further relaxation, 
he listens to rock n' roll and jazz 
tunes (favorites — Phil Spector and 
The Beatles). He prefers English 
style clothes, and his ideal vaca- 
tion is a skiing trip. 

He dates frequently and enjoys 
"a good party where there are 
lots of fun people." He asks only 
that his dates be ready to have 
a lot of laughs and be Interested 
in being with me. "I don't dig 
long faces OR a date who just 
thinks of me as an arm to escort 
her somewhere." 

Al Nichol, a native of Winston 
Salem, North Carolina, can make 
music on the guitar, piano, organ, 
bass, trumpet and harpsichord, as 
well as sing. He can't remember 
when he didn't want to be a sing- 
er, but he went through two years 
of college in Los Angeles before 
he decided to make music a full- 
time career. Al is five-foot-ten, 175 
pounds, has brown hair and brown 
eyes. Before he became a Turtle, 
he did some acting and played 
in bands for recording sessions, 
in nightclubs, and for a gypsy 
wedding. ("My wildest experi- 

Athletically inclined, he plays 
basketball and football and occa- 
sionally runs track. He lives in a 
furnished apartment in Northridge, 
California, relaxes with Bob Dylan 
tunes, Baroque music and rhythm 
'n' blues. He wears dark-colored 
conservative clothes with English 
vests, likes small parties and be- 
ing with a girl who "can be real 
cool, without being phony." He's 
traveled throughout the Eastern, 
Western and Southern States, and 
hopes eventually to be able to see 
the rest of the world. 

Mark Volman born in Los Ange- 
les, April 19, is also accomplished 
on the clarinet, saxophone, drums 
and harmonica. He recalls that 
he originally wanted to be a fire-

man, but a taste of music in high 
school changed all that. He went 
through one year of college before 
plunging all the way into his 
present career. Mark is five-foot- 
eleven, 190 pounds, with brown 
hair and brown eyes. He shares 
an apartment with his parents in 
Los Angeles, likes bowling, sailing, 
tacos, chicken and hamburgers. 

He has an extensive modern 
jazz, folk, and rock n' roll rec- 
ord collection; collects stamps and 
coins; and enjoys reading contem- 
porary novels. His dates are usu- 
ally girls "with a great personality 
and a good figure" and he prefers 
"quiet parties" or going to clubs 
with a "swing band like Les 
Brown." His wardrobe is mostly 
casual— slacks and shirts with an 
English flavor. One day he hopes 
to be able to tour England and 

Charles Portz, born in Los Ange- 
les March 28, can back up his 
singing with melodies on his gui- 
tar, bass or harmonica. Five-foot- 
nine, with brown eyes and black 
hair, he weighs in at 170 pounds. 
In high school, sports were his 
major forte — he was California 
State Diving finalist in 1961— and 
he "fooled around with music 
just for kicks." Before he had 
finished one year of college, he'd 
made the choice of music over the 
swimming pool for a career. 

Today, Charles lives with his 
parents in Los Angeles, works out 
on the trampoline, and keeps in 
shape at the neighborhood pool 
when he isn't performing with the 
Turtles. He likes "far out" clothes 
—cord fevis, sheep-skin belts, and 
boots; the music of Tchaikovsky, 
The Rolling Stones, Shastokovitch 
and LambertrMendricks and Ross 
and movies featuring Annette Fun- 
icello. He 'describes himself as 
having itchy feet— "I like to see 
new places and try new things," 
and looks for a girl who shares 
this sense of adventure. 

Don Murray, drummer of the 
group, can also hold his own on 
the harmonica and guitar. Born 
in Los Angeles, November 8, Don 
is fiv^fopt-ten, 160 pounds, with 
brown hair and brown eyes. When 
he was in grammar school, his 
parents took him to a production 
of the stage play, Peter Pan, and 
he wanted to be the hero, until 
he got his first set of drums. 
After that, there was no question 

as to his future, 

He graduated from high schoo' 
and attended college for a yeai 
before he decided to spend all his 
time "beating the skins." He lives 
with his parents in Los Angeles 
likes Spanish food, beef stfoganoff 
and suits with vests and high-colt 
lared shirts. He keeps trim with 
lots of surfing and relaxes w ^ 
Dave Brubeck tunes, blues, folk, 
and rock n' roll music. He enjoys 
watching George Peppard, Ann 
Bancroft and Paul Newman on 
the Silver Screen and watches TV 
"sporadically, usually the Educa- 
tional Station." He likes to read, 
"non-fiction, social criticism and 
science (sometimes there's very 
little difference!"), his favorite 
authors being Ray Bradbury, Ayr 
Rand and John Steinbeck. He pre 
fers "calm parties where every- 
thing keeps cool . . . and girls 
who are humorous, fun to be with, 
and intelligent." His biggest hobby 
is collecting "Collector's comic

Committee Chairman 
Reports On Frolics 

I feel this year's Spring Frolics 
program has the makings of one 
of the finest frolics ever presented 
at Palm Beach Junior College. 

The quality of both groups is 
self-evident by (he long list of 
their hit records. Jay and The 
Americans have been touring col- 
leges throughout the country, and 


have been playing to SRO crowds. 
While their counter-part, The 
Turtles, have established them- 
selves as one of the finest Rock 
groups to come from sunny Cal- 

Personal thank-you's must be 
given to the following individuals 
and committees for their hard 
work in producing this year's 

Social Committee, Spirit and 
Traditions Board, Mrs. Erling, Mr. 
Edwards, Dave Doucette, Jon 
Miller, Chuck Massey, and a spe- 
cial thank-you to SGA advisor 
Miss Marion McNeely, whose un- 
derstanding and assistance was 
invaluable to me in preparing 
Frolics weekend. 

It is my extreme desire that all 
students at Palm Beach Junior 
College enjoy themselves fully at 
this traditional weekend. 

Respectfully yours,

the Pacer baseball team to 6-5 
and 6-3 losses in a doubleheader 
against Florida Keys JC. 

The first game started when 
fielder Jim Panky cleared the 
bases to bring George Tauser and 
Mike Bowman in for the first two 
Pacer runs. 

Two Pacer errors in the third 
inning allowed FKJC . to pull in 
three runs. But PBJC's George 
Tauser stole home to even up the 

In the fourth, the Wreckers 
swept in three more runs, one on 
a Pacer error, to build up a 6-3 

Between the ups and downs of 
the fifth and eighth innings, the 
Pacers pulled their fourth point. 

Pitcher George Lott batted in 
Tom Lovell in the ninth inning 
for the final Pacer run. 

The second game brought more 
dark clouds to the Pacers as 
FKJC downed them 6-3.

at 1-14.

Swimming is still a big question. We have a lifesaving course, but 
no intramural activities yet. Anyone interested in competitive swimming 
should see Miss Leaf. 

After the way our (Florida's) swimmers lost to California in the 
AAU meets last year, it would seem to indicate a weakness some- 
where. Is it at this level?

I have been studying the reports concerning Junior College football. 

At the risk of sounding like a reactionary, I will put my two-cents 
worth in against it. 

In the first place, it is too expensive. We don't have a well 
established program in intercollegiate basketball and baseball yet. 

There would have to be at least 11 scholarships awarded to build 
even a nucleus of a football team. Right now the college can't afford 
decent scholarships for the existing sports and to add a new strain like 
football might cause the whole program to come falling down around us. 

Fan support would probably leave something to be desired. An 
admission charge of some kind would be required to keep the football 
team out of the red. How could we expect to get fans to pay for 
football when they won't even come to the other sporting events for 

Another good reason is talent, or lack of talent. We have some of 
the best football in Florida here in Palm Beach County. We also 
have some of the worst. 

There would only be one power and that is in Miami. The players 
aren't that much better, but they have a much larger reservoir of 
talent than we do. 

The only way that Palm Beach could be representative would be 
to recruit outside of the county. Mf we were allowed to do this, then 
the other schools would be too. Miami-Dade with it superior scholar- 
ships, would clean out our county while we were looking elsewhere. 

* * * 

I made a mistake last week concerning tennis. Only the girl's 
team has to pay to play. 

The men's team is allowed to play at the Boynton Beach recreation 
center for nothing. 

Still, I think that the $700 would be put to better use on the facilities 
here at school than it is by furthering the profits of private enterprise. 

I'd be willing to bet that the cost goes up next year. 

* * * 

Food for thought: It may be remotely possible that some of our 
"athletes" play better when they are adored like they were in 
high school. 

Fellows, it isn't possible here. There aren't twenty people on 
campus who even know your names. They don't even care. 

Here is your first taste of the cold world outside the nest where 
you have to make it without someone cheering you on. 

From here on, anything that you do will be for yourself. Increasing 
your own self-esteem. This is what life is all about. If you still need 
a crutch, you have a long way to go. 

Those who quit the team last week must have missed all the 
fringe benefits that go with high school athletics. If they didn't, if they 
quit just because they didn't want to play, then I admire them for 
thinking for themselves. But quitting after they had accepted money 
from the school leaves something to be desired in the integrity 

If you don't want to work for what the school gave you, then 
pay it back.

Students Trf To Start Sail 
Club At JC For Eijof meit # 
Possible l-C Competitioi 

by Gayle McEIroy 

'Camber Feature Editor 

Take a stretch of subtropical 
Floridian water. Add several 
choppy waves and an occasional 
gust of wind. Blend with the 
aroma of water and the feeling 
of nature engulfing you. Now mix 
them all together and these ingre- 
dients form one of the most recre- 
ational sports today— sailing. 

A group or interested students 
headed by sophomore Rick Ed- 
munds and Mr. Richard Gross, 
tentative advisor, are looking into 
the aspects of starting a sailing 
club at PBJC. 

"Such a club," Edmonds ex- 
plained, "could provide a source 
of year-round coeducational inter- 
collegiate competition. PBJC 
would have a chance to compete 
against schools like Vanderbuilt, 
Tulane, FSU, UF and other col- 
leges and junior colleges." 

The sport of sailing is unique 
in that it is one of the few college 
sports which allows the "average" 
student the opportunity to repre- 
sent his school in competition 
with larger colleges and univer- 
sities (opposed to intercollegiate 
football or swimming). 

Because there is no age limit, 
sailing has been proven a "great 
equalizer." Edmunds added that 
"students will have a chance to 
compete with faculty on an equal 
basis in club regattas." 

Commenting on the therapeutic 
aspects, Edmunds, who sailed last 
year for the University of Florida, 
explained that almost anyone can 
learn to sail and be able to enjoy 
the athletic, as well as the social, 

Sailing, unlike most sports, is 
a participation, rather than a 
spectator sport. It takes someone 
who has never sailed to comment 
as Mark Twain once did, "Watch- 
ing a sailboat race is about as 
much fun as watching grass 

Presently the group is having 
difficulties in focating boats and 
an area to sail. Other technicali- 
ties, are being taken care of, such 
as having the constitution ap- 
proved by the Organization Board. 

Sailing, one of the oldest means 
of transportation, will be taught 
to beginners by more experienced 

In the words of Seneca, 8 B.C.- 
65 A.D., "A great pilot can sail

way for all returning students now 
attending PBJC. 

Department heads have received 
counseling kits from the Regis- 
trar's Office for all students who 
are coded for their departments 
as per major code lists. These 
counseling kits, when completed, 
must be turned in to the regis-

time card the earliest time they 
can arrive on campus and the last 
time possible for leaving.' "Can- 
not attend class" is meant for the 
interval break in the day sched- 
ules, such as Student Government 
meetings, athletic practice time, 
etc. Failure to allow time for 
classes may result in a less desir- 
able schedule. 

Students on academic probation 
may only be counseled for 12 
hours, but will have the oppor- 
tunity to add additional courses if 
the probation is lifted. Possible 
additions may be indicated on the 
back of the registration card.

According to Robert C. Moss, 
dean of men, "the computer will 
find the best schedule available. 
Classes are to be scheduled as 
close together as possible." 

Moss stated, "Computer regis- 
tration is new for all. There are 
problems no one is aware of." He 
added, "You can't find bugs until 
you try it." 

Counseling for fall registration 
ends April 21. 

Wattenbarger, a 1941 graduate of 
PBJC, is slated to be honored by 
the PBJC Alumni Association at 
1:30 in the Student Activity Center 
Lounge. He will be presented a 
plaque of the state of Florida 
showing all the locations of the 
junior colleges in the state. 

A committee of alumni, faculty, 
and administrators located a large 
percentage of Wattenbarger's 
classmates at PBJC and invited 
them to the ceremonies. All except 
nine or ten have been contacted 
and will be here. 

Wattenbarger attended Palm 
Beach County schools before com- 
ing to PBJC and received his 
bachelor's degree in education 
from the University of Florida in 
1943; master's degree in education 
from the U of F in 1947; and a 
doctorate in the same field in 
1950, also from the U of F. 

His doctoral dissertation con- 
cerned the strategic location of 
junior colleges throughout the 
state so that students will be in 
commuting distance of the cam- 

pus. By next fall all but two of 
Florida's junior colleges will be 
within commuting distance of 
ninety percent of the students. 

After serving in the Air Force 
Wattenbarger taught at several 
schools and universities, including 
Washington University, University 
of Florida, Florida State Univer- 
sity, and the University of Iowa. 
Presently he is the Director of 
the State Division of Community 
Junior Colleges and the Executive 
Secretary or the Junior College 

Wattenbarger is a member of 
several state and national organi- 
zations, including the National 
Education Association, Florida 
Education, National Association 
of Public School Adult Educators, 
and the American Association of 
Junior Colleges. He has written 
several books and is a member 
of various state education groups.

nur^t iu the four-year history of the annual weekend.

,ji'l fn.!nre in one weekend. 

Many hours of preparation went into the concert, dance, 
-lid midway events, but it seems that most students prefer to 
participate only if a big-name entertainment group is involved. 

In planning for next year's Spring Frolics we hope that 
tlif Student Government Association will come up with a plan 
f > increase the interest in the Saturday afternoon activities. 

SGA 1, Apathy 

If awards were given for defeating apathy on campus 
f:rst-pLco would have to go to the Spirit and Traditions Board. 

In a week of ticket distribution for the Frolics concert 
aiA dance they gave away over 6,000 tickets for each event. 
The demand for tickets was so great that several hundred 

\tra tickets had to be mimeographed off after the 5500 

riiited tickets ran out. 

Scratch up one victory over apathy to SGA. 

A Look Back 

Several Senators who voted against Sophomore Senator 
Burt Wilkins' impeachment said their vote was influenced by 
Ai Ikim previous record." "He has done a lot for the Senate " 

-aid a Freshman Senator. 

While it is true that Wilkins produced a greater volume 
-' uor* within the Senate than the average Senator, the 
- rnmsnes, of his despicable actions (slander, spitting, profan- 
ity, and obscene gestures) should have outweighed any pre-

Comments On Non-Impeachment 

by Frank Eberling 

'Comber Staff Writer 

Since the impeachment attempt 
of last Thursday's Senate meeting, 
many questions have been raised 
as to the reasons each senator 
voted as he did. 

Senators from both sides ac- 
cused the others of voting as a 
block, and not being influenced 
by the proper representation, but 
rather by a certain small group. 

A poll was taken in an attempt 
to hear as many senators' opin- 
ions as possible. Twenty-four sen- 
ators were polled. 

The eleven who voted for the 
impeachment of Senator Wilkins, 
in genera] felt that his actions 
were unbecoming of a senator 
and that he insulted other sena- 
tors, faculty, and visitors, and 
that they would have voted the 
same regardless of the individual 
involved. They felt that no matter 
what one's previous record was, 
it does not give him license to 
name-call. It was the actions they 
condemned, not the person. 

Wilkins S 

The fifteen senators who voted 
against the impeachment had 
more of a variety of reasons for 
voting in favor of Wilkins. 

Some felt he was "only human" 
and the actions were not serious 
enough to warrant impeachment. 
Others felt impeachment was too 
severe a penalty, and the "humilia- 
tion" of the proceedings was pun- 
ishment enough. 

Most replied that their vote 
would have been the same regard- 
less of the individual, while others 
felt that Wilkins' previous Sen- 
ate record far outweighed his 
later behavior and that by im- 
peaching him, PBJC would have 
lost one of its "best" senators. 

One senator listed "the bias of 
the Beachcomber against Wilkins" 
as one of the factors in his voting 
decision and others felt it was 
not within the jurisdiction of the 
Senate, but rather the adminis- 

Some felt that since there was 
no precedent, that this decision 
would set a "bad" precedent for 

future senates, and that there c- 
no rules in the constitution rega-; 
ing senators' conduct. 

One proposed solution to 
problem was to establish a «<• 
of conduct for senators. H» 
ever, student conduct regulatic 
are already clearly defined s 
pages 24 and 25 in the Stu<fc 

"Students . . . conduct, both s 
and out of college, is expect* 
to be dignified and honorable . . 
Students are accountable al i' 
times for their social and mn 
behavior. Bad conduct on the p.' 
of a student, . . . will delimit' 
reflect on the College and it' 
be severely condemned by the t! 

tays In As 
mpeachment Fails 

by Raul Ramirez 

'Comber News Editor- 

The Student Senate defeated a 
motion to impeach Sophomore Sen- 
ator and President Pro Tem of 
the Senate Burt Wilkins by a 15-11 

The decision terminated two 
weeks of hotly controversial cam- 
pus-wide debate and discussion as 
to the proper conduct of an SGA 
elected officer. 

The motion was made by Sopho- 
more Senator Dennis Brown 
Brown said he moved to impsach 
Wilkins because of Wilkins' be- 
hav 10 r during the course of a pre- 
vious Senate meeting. 

During a Senate meeting three 
weeks ago, Wilkins spat at Publi- 
cations Senator Dave Doucette fol- 
lowing Doucette's presentation of 
a resolution censuring the Presi- 
dent Pro Tem for having referred 
to several Senators with "deroga- 
tory and character defaming re- 

marks" outside the senate 

During the same meeting, Wil- 
kins also used a strong four-letter 
word and obscene gestures direc- 
ted towards Doucette. 

Wilkins' actions were in viola- 
tion of laws which prohibit the 
use of foul language in public, and 
also in defiance of local health 
laws prohibiting spitting in public 
places. The United States Consti- 
tution also outlaws words that "by 
their very utterance injure and 
provoke others to attack." 

Senators voting for Wilkins' im- 
peachment were Adamson, Bar-- 
nette, Kreidler, McElroy, Weber 
Doucette, Benscn, Ramirez, Brown' 
Sedmak. and Weaver. 

Opposing the motion for im- 
peachment were senators Clark 
Craun, Davis, James, Parker' 
Richardson, Haun, Antonsen, Cal- 
houn Foster, Hattan, Hoffman, 
Jacobs, Stephens, and Wilkins 

Dear Editor, 

I don't know who gave you f> 
power to define "Yes" and "Ki 
as used during the Senate mfc 
ings, but I for one do not agrr

I also resent the crude alter,/ 
to blackmail all the Senators \tl 
do not agree with your opta 
concerning the impeachment s 
Senator Burt Wilkins. 

For the benefit of the Stud, 
Body and since you seem to &• 
mand an explanation of a "NY 
vote, may I set forth the follow; 
reasons as to why I voted Hi 

1. Naturally, one does not «t 
done abusive and obscene la; 
guage at any time, but human fc 
ings have breaking points tit 

2. Senator Wilkins has di 
more for our school in the tern 
he has served than many wh»»r!

by Gayle McElroy 

•CobUmst Feature Editor 

All's quiet on the western front, 
but in the case of Palm Beach 
Junior College this has not always 
been so. 

Before settling on its present 
location of fourteen-hundred acres 
on the western shore of Lake Os- 
borne, PBJC drifted from a small 
wing at Palm Beach High School 
to Morrison Field to Lake Park, 
and was dubbed by the local press 
as "The Little Orphan College," a 
title Jong syice outmoded. 

Palm Beach Junior College 
came in|j> being in 1933 through 
the efforts of a group of citizens 
headed by PBHS Principal, Howell 
L. Watkins and Joe Youngblood, 
county superintendent of schools. 
Its aim wag to offer additional 
schooling to high school gradu- 
ates who, for the most part, could 
find no jobs and had no money for 

Even during the great depres- 
sion, students living at home could 
afford the tuition, which was and 
has been, kept as low as possible 
for local residents. It is a credit 
to the leaders of that day that 
higher education became available 
to all income levels in Palm 
Beach County earlier than in any 
other place in the state. 

PBJC, in 1947, became the first 
public junior college in Florida 
to be approved by the State Board 
of Education for participation in 
the Foundation Program. 

The next year the college was 
moved to a complete plant on a 
21-acre site at the de-activated 
Morrlson-.Pield, presently Palm 
lach International Airport, 
lere PBJC had its only dormi- 
ies, chapel, and swimming pool.

Jhe future of the college, but 
>re urgent needs have priority. 
Barely surviving the blow when 
forrison Field was reactivated for 
the Korean Conflict in 1951, PBJC 
received a timely offer from the 

town of Lake Park for the use of 
its town hall. 

The move to rather restricted 
quarters substantially reduced 
both enrollment and faculty and 
in 1955 the college was forced to 
refuse admission to more than 100 

In September, 1956, Palm Beach 
Junior College moved to its pres- 
ent location, donated by the Board 
of Public Instruction. There were 
then five modern buildings on 
campus, and they were opened to 
the largest student body in PBJC 

In the early days there were 
only two areas where specialized 
courses existed — business and 
nursing. Both of these areas still 
exist as departments of the 

As an example of interaction be- 
tween the college and the commu- 
nity, the nursing education depart- 
ment works directly with local 

The business department at 
PBJC is by far the largest and 
best equipped business school in 
the country. Its importance is em- 
phasized by the new three-story 
building now under construction. 

Data Processing, which teaches 
the use of the larger business 
machines, up to and including 
computer technology, now has its 
own building. 

Recent acquisition of an IBM 
1401 computer, added to the exist- 
ing 1620, makes the college one of 
the four best equipped computer 
centers in Palm Beach County. 

Two other business areas, retail- 
ing and hotel-motel management, 
are growing rapidly, and both will 
have special facilities in the new 
Business Administration Building. 
An addition has been added to 
the Dental Health Building which 
includes equipment for dental tech- 
nology, dental assisting and a 
dental research program.

all the fields of study offered at

three are more utilities extensions,

Through its purpose of offering 
a solid academic program to en- 
able its' graduates to contine on in- 
to state universities, PBJC has 
grown from one of the oldest pub- 
lic junior colleges in the state to 
one of the fastest growing and 
highest rated. 

Under the leadership of Dr. 
Harold C. Manor, PBJC president, 
guided by policies set up by the 
PBJC Advisory Board as reviewed 
and approved by the Palm Beach 
County Board of Public Instruc- 
tion, the college has fully main- 
tained and expanded its nearly 
complete offering of university 
parallel courses. 

PBJC provided the first two 
years of college education for 
students interested in becoming 
doctors, lawyers, engineers, den- 
tists, teachers, writers, physical 
scientists, social scientists, psy- 
chologists, musicians, artists, ac- 
tors, business administrators, or 
any other profession requiring a 
four-year college degree or better. 

The college is accredited by the 
Southern Association of Colleges 
and Schools and the State Depart- 

ment of Education. Admission to 
the upper divisions of state uni- 
versities and to a large number of 
other colleges and universities is 
granted upon the satisfactory com-

FJCSGA Adopts Resolution 

A resolution concerning the low- 
ering of the voting age to eighteen, 
introduced by SGA President 
Chuck Massey at the recent an- 
nual state convention of the Flor- 
ida Junior College Student Gov- 
ernment Association in Winter 
Haven, was passed by a 90-2 vote. 

The resolution passed was iden- 
tical to one passed by the student 

senate here last January, with 
the exception of several altera- 
tions adjusting the resolution to 
fit the state association, instead 
of PBJC. 

Wnttejn, and sponsored at PBJC 
by sophomore senator Burt Wil- 
kins, the resolution called for the 
state organization to recommend 
to the state legislature that the 

Wilkins Resigns Post 

As President Pro-Tern 

('Comber staff photo by Tom Klukii t 

SMASH! Sophomore Barbara Veres release' 
unspent energies in one of the activities r 
last weekend's annual Spring Frolics last Sal 
urday, the car smash. 

Sophomore Senator Burt Wilkins 
resigned as President Pro Tem of 
the Senate at last week's student 
legislative body meeting. 

In his letter of resignation, Wil- 
kins stated that "in the past three 
weeks, by my actions, I have di- 
vided this house, the Student Sen- 
ate of Palm Beach Junior College 
" Wilkins was referring to a 
series of incidents centered around 
him which ended when the senate 
Voted down a motion to impeach 
the outspoken Senator, 

During a Senate meeting sev- 
eral weeks ago, Wilkins spat at 
Publications Senator Dave Dou- 
cette following Doucette's presen- 
tation of a resolution censuring 
Wilkins for having referred to 
several Senators with "derogatory 
and character defaming remarks 
outside the Senate meeting room. 

During the same meeting, Wil- 
kins also muttered a strong four 
letter word and made an obscene 
gesture directed towards the Pub- 
lications Senator. 

The Senate voted overwhelm- 
ingly to accept the President Pro 
Tern's resignation. 

It is the duty of the President 
Pro Tem to preside over the Sen- 
ate meetings in the absence of the 
President of the Senate. This has 
occurred only once during the past 
year; when Senate President 
Sherry Kallioinen relinquished the 
chair to Wilkins so that she could 
participate in the general dis- 

Miss Kallioinen told the Beach- 
comber in regard to Wilkins' res- 
ignation: "I feel that this was a 
difficult decision fo« Senator Wil- 
kins to make, but I believe he 
feels, as so many other students 
do, that he should be punished in 
some way and this, in turn, is a 
type of punishment for his actions 
on campus." 

"I don't believe this will change 
the feelings of those favoring his 
impeachment," the Senate Pres- 
ident continued. "However, the 
school year is coming to a close 

Conunued on Page i 

provisions in "the new proposed 
state constitution allowing those 
above the age of eighteen the right 
to vote be approved with the rest 
of the document. 

The resolution was approved by 
the resolutions committee on the 
first day of the convention and 
placed on the agenda for the Fri- 
day afternoon business meeting. 
Massey represented PBJC in 
the Claude Pepper Speech Tour, 
nament where he spoke oh the ad- 
vantages of lowering the voting 
age to eighteen. This tournament 
afforded Massey the opportunity 
to lobby for the resolution before 
the entire delegation. 

Dick Duncan, immediate past- 
president of' FJCSGA, recommend- 
ed to the newly-elected state offi- 
cers that Massey represent the 
state association in presenting the 
resolution to the Constitutional 
Revisions Committee of the state 
legislature. Massey said that he 
has yet to hear from the new offi- 
cers as to whether or not he will 
go before the legislators. 

Massey was accompanied to the 
convention by K Canipe, present 
Secretary, Dave Parker, President 
elect, Joel Rappoport, Vice-Presi- 
dent-elect, and Mr. C. Errol Hicks, 
SGA advisor. 

The delegates attended numer- 
ous workshops on the various as- 
pects of junior college student gov- 
ernment associations and heard 
guest speaker former Governor 
Leroy Collins and Attorney Gen- 
eral, Earl Faircloth. 

FJCSGA represents nearly 100, 
000 students in Florida's twenty- 
five public junior colleges. 

JC Singers In Concert 
Tonight In Auditorium; 
Joiz Band To Perform 

The PBJC College Singers will 
present a concert Friday, April 
14 at 8:15 p.m. in the Auditorium. 

The event features songs of 
poetic and patriotic nature. Also 
included in the event will be show 
arrangements from Broadway 
with costumes and stage settings. 

Every year, the music depart- 
ment chooses the work of a local 
composer to be performed at the 
Spring Choir Concert. This year 
Serge Walter's work "The Road 
is Calling," has been selected. 
Walter's works include the song 
"The Gay Parisienne" from War- 
ner Brothers' movie, "Desert 
Song," and, from the movie 
"Rogue Regiment," the two songs 
"Just For a While" and "Who 
Can Tell" His latest work, patri- 
otic in nature, is "Our Land," pub- 
lished by Bourne Music Company 
of New York. Walter lives at 217 
Peruvian Avenue, Palm Beach. 

The show is divided into four 
choral scenes. The first scene will 
include the entire choral ensemble 
in the singing of "Sons and Daugh- 
ters of a Land Reborn," and "De 
Camptown Races." The Men's 
Chorus will sing "Eternal Father 
Strong to Save." 

The second choral scene is to 
feature the Girls' Chorus in songs 
of a serious and poetic nature. In- 
cluded are arrangements of "The 
Humming Chorus," from "Mad- 

ame Butterfly" by Puccini, "Wind 
and Lyre" by William Rogers, and 
"May Night" by Brahms, 

In the third choral scene, the 
Men's Chorus will sing and enact 
"Old King Cole," an arrangement 
by Milton Okum. 

The fourth choral scene is com- 
posed of Broadway show tunes 
with the members of the ensemble 
in formal attire. 

Featured soloists for the pro- 
gram will include Rick Surface 
singing "The Song of You" by 
Jerome Kern, Milton Minter play- 
ing "The Magic Trumpet" by 
James Burke, Grace Smith play- 
ing Brahms "Capriccio" Op. 76, 
and Cheryl Sickler playing a "Cho- 
pin Waltz in E Minor." 

Accompaniments on the piano 
for the various arrangements will 
he by Grace Smith and Clarence 
Burlingame. Accompaniment on 
the organ will be played by Letha 
Madge Royce, chairman, of the 
music department. 

Dr, Donald Butterworth directs 
the College Singers. Assistant Di- 
rector is Roberta Reusch, who 
will sing "Hello Young Lovers" 
from "The King and I." 

The Jazz Band will also appear 
on the program under the direc- 
tion of Sy Pryweller. 

The concert is free to students 
and faculty and is also open to 
the general public.

sing Eastern European countries to various social science 
classes April 6. Ekvall, who has traveled to Eastern Europe 
twice in the last two years, is presently writing a book about

Gripe Sessions 

One of the main aspects of newly- elected SGA President 
Dave Parker's campaign was a newsletter to let the students 
know, among other things, how the student activity fees were 

being spent. 

Parker stressed communication between the SGA and the 
student as a way of improving student government He has 
several ideas as to how SGA can tell the student what it is 
doing, but he seems to have overlooked any way for the 
students to tell SGA what they want done. 

We suggest to Parker and the other new members of the 
Executive Department that they, in conjunction with the stu- 
dent senate, establish weekly or bi-weekly "gripe sessions" 
where students could voice their opinions, complaints, and 
suggestions to their representatives. A committee of senators 
could conduct the sessions and sponsor any legislation that 
mav come out of the meetings. 

By doing this, the SGA would be giving the students a 
ut* voice in their government. 

forking Together 

If a community junior college is to be successful, it must 
establish a working relationship with the community and its 
civic groups and organizations. 

Such a relationship exists between PBJC and The South- 
side Kiwanis Club. This group is responsible for the multi- 
thiiusand-dollar entrance sign at the northwest corner of the 
campus, as well as the sponsorship of the college's Circle K 
Hub. one of the most outstanding Circle K clubs in the 
state and nation. 

One of Southside Kiwanis' major projects over the past 
few >ears has been the barbeque that they sponsor annually 
on Open House Sunday. These Kiwanians give of their time 
to provide the many hundreds of visitors to the campus an 
euellent meal for a moderate donation. The funds collected 
K<> nto the group's youth activities, which indirectly aids PBJC. 

Southside Kiwanis and Palm Beach Junior College are 
working together harmoniously to improve the college and the 
community. These Kiwanians deserve a tremendous thank you 
from PBJC.

The Pacers lost two close ones to defending champion 
Miami-Dade North last week. In the first game, Lake Worth's 
Joe Arnold was doing the pitching. 

Arnold now has an 11-0 record and something like ;i 0.11 
ERA. For some reason our team is always able to touch him 
for more than average hits. 

In both games that Arnold has pitched against us we have- 
out hit the Falcons, but just haven't gotten the runs across. 

Sports has been reading a lot about judo competition 
among some of the junior colleges. If there is anyone interested 
in starting a judo team on campus let us know. 

Also, we would appreciate it if anyone with knowledge ot 
the sport would let us know. 

Fi-om experience I can say that judo is interesting, and 
physically one of the greatest sports around. 

It combines a good physical fitness program with the 
pence of mind of being able to defend yourself no matter what 
your size or build. 

It keeps the bullies away . . . like Apple Jacks. 

It is rumored that three junior colleges in the state are 
working on an intercollegiate swimming program. 

So far as I know, none of them have swimming pools yet. 

We have a good AAU program here in the Palm Beaches 
and probably could draw some excellent .swimmers to the 

Someone ought to cheek into the possibilities oi PBJC 
getting into the program. 

• * * 

If you are down in the dumps about our dismal showings 
in intercollegiate sports, then take a look at the tennis team. 

Coach Harris McGirl's men are now 10-1 for the season. 

The team deserves a great round of applause 1 tor their 
fine showing despite the fact that tennis is considered u 
minor sport. 

Palm Beach is coming into its own in tennis behind 
McGirt and has developed into a real power.

Now, if you have been able to stand this thing up to here, 
I have a real bonanza for those who are interested. 

We understand that the PBJC coaches have been study- 
ing our althletic scholarships situation. We suggest that they 
might be interested in a plan recently introduced at St. Peters- 
burg Junior College.

In Ten Inning Gam 

Ten innings and five days ago 
on a nice sunny Saturday the Pacer 
baseball team faced defeat once 
again as Brevard JC defeated 
PBJC 4-3. 

In the third inning shortstop 
Mike Bowman hit a single. He 
wasn't on base long when cen- 
terfielder Tom Lovell pulled a 
double moving Bowman to third. 
Third baseman Rick Morgan then 
hit a single and Bowman scored 
with Lovell taking third. Bill 
Thomas was put out on a line-fly 
to center, but Lovell tagged up 
and crossed home to give the 
Pacers two runs and the lead. 

Two Pacer errors in the fourth 
inning allowed Brevard's Tom 
Wentz to cross the plate for the 
first Titan run. 

Pacer Jim Pankey was walked 
in the fourth followed by two 
outs. Mike Bowman went to the 
batters box and pounded a triple 
to right field which allowed Pan- 
key to score. 

There was no seventh inning 
stretch but Brevard still managed 
lo score their second run of the 
game after a Pacer error. 

Pacer pitcher Reijo Aho was re- 
lieved by Pat McCaffrey at the 
end of the seventh. 

Titan leflfielder Hobie Holland 
showed the hitting ability of Bre- 
vard as he drove a homerun over 
the head of Pacer fielder George 

Tauser to bring the game to a 
3-3 tie in the eighth. 

With the bases loaded and with 
one out in the ninth Pacer short- 
stop Bowman attempted to steal 
home on a stray bunt by Bill 
Thomas, but was put out by the 
Titan catcher. 

When the extra inning came the 
Titan hitting ability was again 
shown as lcftfielded Holland 
pulled his second homerun of the 
day to give Brevard the winning

and I hope his resignation as

down the matter. 

SGA President Chuck Massey 
also commented on Wilkins' resig- 
nation: "I feel reassured in the 
stability and integrity of the Sen- 
ate in the wake of the recent res- 
ignation of Senator Wilkins as 
President Pro Tem. Frankly, I 
don't know how the Senator could 
have done anything less in view 
of the recent allegations, charges, 
and reprimands brought against 
him by fellow Senators." 

Massey added: "I am elated to 
see that he recognizes, as he 
stated in his letter of resignation, 
that a divided house cannot stand 
and I am hopeful that his future 
actions and the actions of every 
Senator will be that of individual 
integrity, responsibility, and ma- 
turity that was voted to them as 
elected representatives." 

The Senate will select a new 
President Pro Tern at tomorrow's 

Bishop was awarded the first 
plaque ever given to a member 
in the history of the Florida Asso- 
ciation of Colleges and Universi- 
ties at a meeting of the associa- 
tion in Tallahassee recently. 

The award was in recognition 
of Bishop's 20 consecutive years 
as an officer and executive com- 
mittee member of the association, 
longer service than that given by 
any other member. 

The registrar, a pioneer in pub- 
lic junior college education in the 
state, was a member of the asso- 
ciation for "seven or eight years" 
before being elected secretary in 
1947, moving to vice president in 
1952 and president in 1953, 

Bishop, who is completing his 
30th year at PBJC, has the longest 
continuous full-time employment 
record of any public junior college 
employee in the state of Florida 
with one exception: His own ad- 
ministrative assistant, Miss Edna 
D. Wilson was employed at PBJC 
a few months before Bishop 

The registrar has also been hon- 
ored with a formal resolution by 
the Florida Association of College 
Registrars and Admissions Offi- 
cers of which he is a charter 
member. He was made a life 
member of the association.

Log In Communication Causes Athletic Ills 

by Sam Pepper 

'Comber Associate Editor 

The PBJC Athletic Program, 
still ■trying to emerge from the 
dark ages, is now undergoing a 
test, a test that could well prove 
whether or not intercollegiate 
athletics are to be a permanent 
part of this institution. 

On the morning of April 10, base- 
ball coach Jack Stockton was 
handed the following memo by 
Athletic Director Mrs. Elisabeth 

"The Athletic Committee upon 
review of circumstances surround- 
ing baseball, your illness and lack 
of practice, that the remainder of 
the baseball schedule for this sea- 
son be forfeited as ei 11:30 a.m., 

April 9, 1968. Please notify all 
team members of the same and 
ask that they check in their gear." 

The notice came within only a 
few weeks after Coach Stockton 
had made recommendations to the 
Athletic Committee as to the need 
of a full-time athletic director. 

After receiving the decision, 
Stockton asked Mrs. Erling if she 
realized the implication of such an 
action. Mrs. Erling replied, "I did 
and would have voted the same 
way had I been there to do so." 

Mrs. Erling is an ex officio 
member of the committee and 
was not present at the time of the 
meeting. She also does not have 
a vote in committee business. 

Coach Stockton then went to 

Mr. Charles Connell, Chairman of 
the Faculty Athletic Committee 
for an explanation as to why Che 
season had been terminated, Con- 
nell listed the reasons as: 
1. Losing season — would be 
advantageous for the boys 
to be tn class rather than 
lose the remaining ball 
2. The number of 'team mem- 
bers has decreased since 
the beginning of the sea- 
3. His (Stockton's) attendance 
and the fact that the team 
bad. not practiced for three 

On the above reasons Stockton 
had these comments: (1) "Al- 

though a team may have a poor 
season, individuals still excel. 
Thus far three players are being 
considered for scholarships to 
four-year institutions, one of them 
being the nation, 1 !! leader in small 
college baseball." Ho then added 
that Council stated there wf re sev- 
en games i draining when there 
were in reality only three. 

(2) "Any athletic team at PBJC 
takes its toll fr«m academic re- 
quirements. We started with 24 
boys at the- fccginnlng of the sea- 
son. These were the ones that 
made on attempt at fall practice 

and had stuck it out and deserved 
a chance during the regular sea- 

"After six weeks' grades were 
out, I recommended that two of 
these boys giv their studies more 
attention and they couldn't do this 
by being out for baseball. Two 
others came to me during the 
season with similar problems and 
wc have agreed that grades come 
before baseball. 

"Three boys were diopped be- 
cause of lack of needed skills. Be-

by Dr. Henry King Stanford, presi-

a musical program by the Concert 
Band and College Singers in the 

expansiveness of the West Palm

Approximately 400 students ten-

at the 8 p.m. ceremony. 

The West Palm Beach Audito-

Dr. Stanford, guest speaker at

New York University and is a

Georgia Southwestern College, 
President of The Women's College

might have prompted our committee's action. This is

I voted not to forfeit any of the games. One mem-

Philo social club presents their 
28th Annual Golden Arch Ball this 
Saturday, Apnl 20, at the Captain 
Alex's Colonial Room in Riviera 

"The Cousins," a seven, member 
dance band of state-wide renown 
are to furnish their talents for the 
9 to 1:00 a.m. formal/semi-formal 
ball at which Philo pledges are 
formally introduced as sisters un- 
der the traditional arch. 

Later in the program, the selec- 
tion of the Beau and Beau Beau 
is to be announced by past presi- 
dent, Shelia Wiley. The Beau is 
to be presented with a sterling 
mug. Last year's reigning Beau 
was Joey Hagin and Paul Gold- 
stein was the Beau Beau. 

The sisters and pledges have 
combined talents to make the 
Golden Arch and many other dec-

The ballroom has been described 
as "not too bindingly formal, but 
formal enough." 

Although tuxedos and formal 
dresses are worn, suits and cock- 

tail dresses are completely ac- 
ceptable and recommended. 

The main attraction of the ball 
remains with "The Cousins," 
"They pint on a show besides a 
dance." explains Philo president, 
Penny Salts. "They bring the 
audience into the music. At the 
Sweetheart Ball, for example, the

tional $159.17 to defray the rising 
costs of the ball. The bill was in- 
troduced by Senator Eileen Allen 
and was signed 'into law immedi- 
ately following the meeting by 
President Parker. 

"We hope the ball will be as 
big a success as Phi Da Di's 
Sweetheart Ball, if not bigger," 
concluded Penny Salts.

'Comber Concepts 

One Step From Excellence 

PBJC in the past has achieved an enviable national repu- 
tation for excellence and has long been known foi its academic 
contributions and accomplishments. 

At present this reputation stands to receive a black eye 
as one facet is beginning to blotch this record and in some 
areas reducing it to a laughing stock. 

PBJC should endeavor to achieve the highest possible 
goal in any program offered. 

However, the present athletic program because of poor 
management does not adhere to the general image that has 
been associated with this institution. 

We do not feel that this program should be over empha- 
sized (and certainly that does not "apply to PBJC at the pres- 
ent), but we do feel this piogram should be administeied to 
achieve the same standard of excellence as any of our other 

A few years ago when the students voted to accept the 
additional costs in the activity fee, it was reasonable to assume 
that the\ had even reason to believe that athletics would be 
administered as carefully as any other PBJC program. 

There are too many personal hopes, plans and hours of 
those involved in the program to allow it to be poorlv and 
casually administered, not to mention the thousands of dollars 
assessed from student activitv fees. 

The program perhaps was doomed from the beginning 
aen the present athletic director, Mrs. Elisabeth Erring, 
snt on record during a faculty meeting as saying she was 
iposed to athletics at this junior college. 

It is a simple matter to determine where some of the 
rroneous information used by the Athletic Committee in their 
jltimaturn came from concerning our baseball program. The 
difficulty comes in trying to determine the whys. 

Some basic suggestions for emergency implementation to 
save the program might be: 

1. Face-to-face meetings and discussion of those directly 
involved in policj making. 

2. Immediate secession of written ultimatums without 
prior discussion. 

3. Committee meetings enmasse, rather than individual 
contact by telephone. 

A successful program should be administered on a give- 
and-take basis. College coaches should be given credit for 
knowing something about their work and also of the courtesv 
of being consulted before they are handed an ultimatum. 

A program of this scope which affects the very repu- 
tation of its coaches, the future of its participants and the 
personal pride of the students and staff involved, deserves a 
full-time athletic director who will take the time to discuss 
policies, procedures and develop a program commemorate of a 
junior college that has established a reputation for excellence.

Gabdge: Garbage Or Insight? 

Dear Editor, 

It is my opinion that the article 
in reference to Jesus Christ in the 
GABA*GE column in the April 10 
edition was exceedingly unneces- 
sary and written (or copied) in 
very poor taste. Even though the 
writer of this article only used

Our campus newspaper is sup- 
posed to contribute campus news

The article to which I refer is 
not in the best interest of our cam- 
pus; are you as students and fac-

paper when it contains such ques-

I have noticed that in many of 
the GABA'GE columns recently, 
there have been items lifted from 
other sources which reflect an 
adverse opinion of God, or Jesus 
Christ, and other references to 
religion. I feel this is not proper 
material for a campus newspaper.

Dear Editor; 

Congratulations on last issue's 

During a time when the church 
is struggling to communicate with 
youth, it is a welcome sight to see 
a description of Christ that youth 
can identify with. 

The poster mentioned in the col- 
umn is a modem day parable, and 

Nationally Honored] 

Raul Ramirez, staff writer for 
the University of Florida's student 
newspaper the Alligator, and for- 
mer editor-in-chief, associate edi- 
tor, feature editor and staff wri- 
ter for the Beachcomber, has re- 
ceived fourth place nationally in 
the William Randolf Hearst Con- 
test. Ramirez won a $300 schol- 
arship for his efforts. 

The award is presented in mem- 
ory of William Randolf Hearst 
(1863-1951) who in 1900 controlled 
13 6"' of all daily circulation in the 
US With this control he advocated 
a graduated income tax, election 
of US senators by popular vote 
and extensive financial support 
of public schools 

it is ironic that it was met with 
such a negative response. Then 
again, His life was ironic, too. His 
life on earth was one of peace and 
love . . . and ended in cruelty and 
hate. It was His own people who 
turned against Him. 

Jon Miller has done more in one 
paragraph to get this campus talk- 
ing about Jesus Christ than what 
I've seen of all the campus reli- 
gious organizations in the past two 
years. Jesus was poorly dressed; 
He did have visionary ideas; He 
did associate with the unemployed 
and the bums. Jesus was cool and 
this is the first time I've seen it 
written in modern language. 

If those who think the column 
was done in poor taste could only 
realize the irony m it. Perhaps we 
should re-examine ourselves and 
make sure that before we judge 
Mr. Miller, we make sure that we, 
being His (Jesus') people, are not 
turning against Him, the "respect- 
able people" that we are.

Dear Editor: 

To begin, Larry Krasulak and 
Gayle McElroy did an outstanding 
job in investigating and bringing 

in new information on the Phi Ik 
Di Bill. They should be commerc- 
ed for this. BUT—should they b: 
commended, or was it their deft 
as members in S.G.A. to bring lb 
information out? This I feel is the 
question at hand. 

I as a member of the Finals 
Committee as well as a senaa 
was against the Phi Da Di B 
No. 10. Because I was against ;: 
I wanted to investigate it beta 
it's passage or defeat. But becais! 
of many other things I failed u 
investigate the bill. I must apov 
gize to the students of this schw 
—for my negligence on this ma 
ter, because in the past it iiii 
been checked. Many things ha,! 
come from this investigation whitf 
took place after the passage of (h 
bill instead of before. 

in conclusion I don't know «1. 
the other senators didn't inves'r 
gate the bill. But it was their ft 
sponsibility as much as mi 
And I hope they will persona", 
investigate every other such mi' 
ter, as well as myself, so &; 
everyone is aware of the circir- 
stances involved.

To all would-be hippies: N. R. Pitt, M.D., has written an 
article in the May Esquire detailing the consequences of 
"Thirty Days Without a Bath". 

Let me merely project to you the twenty-eighth day. "By 
now you've got the picture. M'atted, rancid hair, scary finger- 
nails, pimples ini all stages of growth, athlete's foot, yeast 
infection on the thighs, an overpowering stench and, if you 
haven't brushed your teeth, an advanced case of halitosis." 

Glory be! Just to be a hippie?

lOverride Fails On Bill: 

Following last week's expose in 
the Beachcomber concerning the 
Phi Da Di Reimbursement Bill, 
SGA President Dave Parker has 
vetoed the bill. 

The Phi Da Di bill, which origi- 
nally passed the student Senate 
by a vote 15-11, would allot the 
club an additional $63.93 "above 
and beyond" the original amount 
of $675 allocated by SGA for their 
30th Annual Sweetheart Ball. 

After much heated debate the 
senators voted in the following 
ways: Aye— Senators Allen, Bates, 
Bennett, Durako, Ferguson, Ham- 
lin, Lash, Massey, McLaughlin, 
Nunn, Onstott, Rowan, Smith, 
Weber, and Lewis; Nay— Senators 
Adams, Beneson, Boiling, Boston,

A full and immediate military 
increase until a victory is se- 
cured and then a withdrawal was 
the majority choice of the student 
poll last Wednesday by the Com- 
munications Board of the S.G.A. 

One hundred and twenty-two 
students voted for the immediate 
increase while thirty-nine voted for 
immediate withdrawal. Twenty- 
eight voted for no change in the 
current policy. 

The Communications Board 
with the aid of Circle K, K-ettes, 
several Senators, and Civitan 
members, conducted the poll from 
8:40 through 9:40. 

Communications Board Chair- 
man Ruth Obenlin, stated that the 
reason for exercising the poll for 
only one hour was to eliminate 
any duplicate voting. 

The second part of the poll was 
concerned with the mandatory at- 
tendance at graduation ceremo- 
nies for sophomores continuing 
their education. 

Eighty^three students felt that 
attendance at graduation cere- 
monies should not be mandatory, 
while twenty-five students felt 
that 'students should be required 
to attend.

cause of this they would not get 
to play much ball. Two others had 
to quit because of financial rea- 
sons in which their own self sup- 
port was involved. 

"We ended up with 15 boys who 
were intent on playing the game 
to the best of their ability and 
they have done so." 

Despite a poor won-loss record, 
this year's team was the best on 
record at PBJC, including the 
year when Chairman Connell 
served as coach. 

(3) "The dates in question," 
Stockton continued, "on my at- 
tendance were April 4 and 8. I 
have provided a doctor's con- 
firmation for these dates to clear 
ihe record. We had missed two 
days because of rain back in Feb- 
ruary and two days because of a 
death in my family during the 
middle of March. 

"Someone had taken it upon 
themselves to draw the conclusion 
that my absence on April 4 and 8 
for an infected throat condition 
was missing school unnecessarily 
and detrimental to the outcome of 
the season." 

In an attempt to find the source 
and verification of the number of 
absences mentioned by the Ath- 
letic Committee, this writer was 
told by Mr. Connell that such de- 
tails were not for publication. 
Mrs. Erling also declined to com- 
ment, but sugggested that Dr. 
Manor be contacted. 

The Faculty Handbook, which 
is the written policy of PBJC 
states, "Responsibility for obtain- 
ing such information which may 
be requested by the committee 
shall be assumed by the Chair- 
man of the Department of Health 
and Physical Education (Mrs. Er- 

According to Chairman Connell, 
the Committee researches all of 
its information. 

However, one member of the 
committee refuted this by stating 
that if he had to research any 
problems of the program he would 
resign from the committee. Other 
members have expressed the same 

Shortly after Coach Stockton had 
informed the team of the commit- 
tee's decision, he was called out 
of class by Mr. Connell and Mrs. 
Erling and was asked if the team 
would care to vote on whether «r 
not to continue the season, and If 
they voted affirmatively would he 
(Stockton) continue to serve as 

Stockton replied that he didn't 
think there was a boy on the team 
who would not vote to continue 
the season. 

Connell also added that this vot- 
ing stipulation was an original 
part of the vote (taken by phone) 
of the Athletic Committee. 

It also should be noted that 
members of the committee did 
not meet in session but were con- 
tacted individually by Chairman 
Connell. The future of an entire 

program hinged on the decision of 
this informal meeting. 

The stipulation, according to 
Connell, read "That should the 
committee vote to discontinue the 
season, then the team would have 
the opportunity to vote on the 

The information was not pre- 
sented to Coach Stockton as being 
part of the ultimatum prior to his 
first meeting with the team on 
April 10. 

After checking with members of 
the Athletic Committee, it was 
found that they had no knowledge 
of this stipulation either. 

Stockton then went to PBJC's 
President, Dr. Harold C. Manor, 
to discuss the situation. 

Dr. Manor said that the idea of 
a team vote probably came from 
his office between the time Coach 
Stockton met with the team at 
10:00 am. and his being called 
out of class at 11 00 when the idea 
was first presented to him (Stock- 

This information coming from 
the president's office is in con- 
flict with Council's statement that 
the voting stipulation was an orig- 
inal part of the decision. 

Dr. Manor commented that he 
"would look into the situation and 
it would be taken care of." 

It appears that the major issue 
at hand is whether or not the Ath- 
letic Committee was justified in 
taking such an action. 

According to the Faculty Hand- 
book, the purpose of the Commit- 
tee is: 

1. To serve as a liason between 
the Athletic Program and the 

2. To recommend the general 
procedures within which the Ath- 
letic Program will function. 

3. It is not the purpose of the 
Committee to administer any as- 
pect of the Athletic Program. 

According to Chairman Connell, 
the function of the Committee is 
to "write policy, administer and 
control all aspects of the Athletic 

Mrs. Erling offered still another 
interpretation: "It is the duty of 
the Committee to write and set 
policy and prpcedures, and it is 
ray duty to administer their de- 

It is the concensus of the coaches 
m the athletic department that the 
only thing gained by the entire 
incident was that it damaged the 
reputation of the coach involved. 
It distorted the image of athletics' 
at PBJC in that this image was 
conveyed through various local 
news media. It destroyed the per- 
sonal pride of the baseball team 

Perhaps the team in a written 
statement summed up the chain of 
events best when they said, "We 
have been playing to the best of 
oar ability until the last out of 
each ball game, and would like 
to do so until the end of the 
scheduled season. Let's play ball 
and let those who have instigated 
this misdemeanor suffer from 
their action."

Pacers Upset Indian River, 4-1 
Eastern's Home Run Paces Win 

by John Flynn 

'Comber Staff Writer 

A week ago Tuesday, members 
of the PBJC baseball team were 
excused from classes to travel 
south for an FJCC baseball con- 
test against Miami Dade South. 

It was only after the entire base- 
ball squad had assembled in front 
of baseball coach Jack Stockton's 
office on Tuesday, that it was an- 
nounced by Stockton himself, that 
the Dade South game had been 
cancelled along with the two other 
games remaining on the Pacers' 

With the announcement made, 
the Pacers baseball season came 
unofficially to a close, And for 
most teams who carried as poor 
a record as did the Pacers (4 
wins against 19 defeats), they'd 
be glad the nightmare was over. 
But, our Pacers are a strange 
bunch, and following a team con- 
ference it was announced that the 
players themselves, wished to 
play out the season. 

Why the PBJC baseball team 
decided to continue playing re- 

mains a mystery. There is a fine 
possibility though, that one reason 
why the Pacers wanted to con- 
tinue play is that they had one 
remaining game against arch-ri- 
val Indian River. 

Prior to the two teams meeting 
at John Prince Park last Thurs- 
day, the Pioneers had defeated the 
Pacers on three separate occa- 
sions this year. 

But on Thursday, the tide was 
about to change. PBJC behind the 
superb pitching of Reiho Aho, and 
the timely hitting of Richard 
Easton, defeated Indian River, 4-1. 
It was the first time in PBJC's 
four year history that they had de- 
feated the Pioneers, and it marked 
the Pacers' finest hour of the en- 
tire season. 

Palm Beach jumped out to an 
early lead in the first inning, when 
after two out, Bill Rhoden, Danny 
Bigbie, and Ivan Walker slammed 
out consecutive singles. 

PBJC closed out their scoring 
with three more runs in the eighth 
inning. With one out, Jim Cariseo 
tripled and Easton followed with

The next seven years, the ex-

school dances and made it a point 
to know practically all the stu-

his first few years as registrar. 

Times have changed, but the 
registrar has continually tried to 
follow the policy of "treating ev-

Belle Glade or Palm Beach." 

Once his retirement is in effect, 
Bishop plans to spend his leisure 
time fishing, traveling, swimming

Strengthen Laws 

The traffic regulations in the studept handbook call for the. 
automatic suspension of campus driving privileges after the 
fourth speeding violation. However, they fail to set a limit to 
the number of parking violations that a student may receive. 

Theoretically, a student could park in any space for as long 
as he wants, if he pays the one dollar fine each time. On many 
of the rainy days here a parking space near a building would be 
well worth the dollar fine. 

At other junior colleges and universities throughout the 
state the fines for illegal parking on "campus are more Strict 
than those here. A parking violation at the University of Florida 
carries a fine of five dollars and suspension of driving rights in 
the county after the second offense. 

We would like to see the traffic regulations bere changed 
to make the fines for continuous parking violations as stringent 
as speeding offenses. 

Forward March 

One of the main aspects of college life missing from 
Florida's junior college system is a marching band. 

We don't know of any junior colleges in the state with a 
-aarching band, yet we wonder why this situation exists. 

Junior college marching bands would serve a purpose 

ilar to junior college athletics-affording the students the 

(ortunity to participate in the activity between graduation 

m high school and entrance to a university. Marching in the 

any local parades would also give the musicians a chance to 

.'present the college before the public. 

With a combined effort by the music department, the 
Student Government Association, and the college itself, PBJG 
could be the pacesetter in this new field of junior college 

Fair At Open House 

Open House drew over 3,500 visitors to the campus, most 
f them adults. 

With the various departments of campus conducting 
demonstrations and exhibits, Open House would be the most 
appropriate time to interest the prospective student' in Palm 
Beach Junior College. 

In planning next year's Open House we hope that the 
Open House committee will make a concerned effort to bring 
prospective students here for the festivities. Perhaps if the 
County High School Science Fair was held in conjunction with 
Open House several hundred students and parents would be 
on campus.

Men Netfers 
Aim Toward 

The men's tennis team lost two 
crucial matches last week as they 
bowed to Broward JC Tuesday, 
5-3 and to Miami Dade JC Thurs- 
day, 6-1. 

Saturday was a complete re- 
versal as the men netters blanket- 
ed St. Johns JC 6-1 at the Boyn- 
ton Beach Recreation Department 
Courts. PBJC now stands at 12 
wins against 3 defeats. 

Today, the men netters travel 
to Cape Coral for the annual Flor- 
ida Junior College Tennis Cham- 
pionships. Thereafter the team 
will travel to the University of 
Florida for the State Tournament 
and to Ocala, for the National 
Junior College Tournament. 

Coach McGirt feels confident 
that his team will make a fine 
showing in the tournaments. 

Men Golfers Set

ninth in the recent annual Florida 
Junior College Golf Championship 
in Naples. 

Wally Kuchar tied St. Pete's

The season for the linksters 
ends Friday as they travel to St. 
Petersburg JC. 

May 4-7 the golfers will compete 
in the state tournament at Port 
St. Lucie. The team has a 4-9 rec- 
ord at present.

To all those Judo nuts who are interested, we had a very 
favorable response to the query last week. The next thing we 
have to do is find a place to practice. I believe that if we can 
get a faculty advisor, we might be able to use the gym if we 
don't inconvenience anyone. 

There is at least one brown belt who is interested, and 
I believe that there is a black belt wandering around campus. 

This could turn into something big if we keep on it, so 
stay in touch with sports.

The tennis team dropped its third match of the year to 
Miami-Dade North, but is sure wasn't a disgrace to lose to the 
national champions of 1966. 

Bob Rohr established some kind of record, I'm sure, with 
his marathon three-hour battle with the Falcon number-two 

From what I can gather, no one has given him quite the 
time that Rhor did. 

The team's record is now 11-3 which is good in any league. 
And in case anyone has forgotten, we get most of them back 
next year. Anybody care to speculate on the chances of a 1968 
state or national title for the Pacer tennis team?

Watch out Miami-Dade. Watch out Indian River. Watch 
out Brevard. PBJC has just revised its scholarship program. 
I don't know just what it is all about yet, but I do know that 
it is better by far than what we had. 

This much is not speculation. The scholarships will be 
tailored to the talent. If a boy is good enough to rate a little 
extra, then he will get it. 

It has been said around the gym that there . on't he any 
more raids on Palm Beach County talent with the new pro- 
gram. It must be something. 

The athletic department does need a little more money 
though. If anyone has ny ideas on how to raise some funds, 
let us know. 

Some of you publ c relations students may want to help. 
This would be great lab work, and the benefits would be real.

When are we going to get a permanent athletic director?

When are we going to get some assistant coaches?

Here is the answer to a rumor that has been going around. 
There have been claims that a social club "kidnapped" a pitcher 
on the baseball team and made him miss a game. 

Several sources say that this is not true. I believe it. Tr 
say that he was home in plenty of time to make the gamft. 

Where was he? 

* • • 

Are there going to be more tennis courses available 

in the fall? 

* * * 

Will we get courtesy cars to replace those expensive busses 

and rental cars?

Burl Wilkins 
From Senate 

Sophomore Burt Wilkins was 
suspended from his Senatorial of- 
fice at last Thursday's Student 
Senate meeting. 

Senate President Sherry Kalli- 
oinen read a statement from SGA 
advisor Miss Marion C. McNeely 
in which the suspension was made 
known to the legislative group. 

In a previous letter to the Sen- 
ate, the SGA advisor had stated 
that no action would be taken 
against Wilkins because the 
former President Pro Tern of the 
Senate's "controversial conduct, 
occurred outside Senate meet- 

The misconduct which lead to 
Wilkins' suspension was, as re- 
ported in previous issues of the 
Beachcomber, his use of obscene 
language and gestures during the 
March 16 Senate meeting. 

Following the reading of her 
first statement Miss McNeely 
polled all Senate officials present 
at the March 16 meeting. The in- 
terviews conclusively revealed 
that, in effect, Wilkins' actions 
had taken place during that 

"Now I am impelled, as SGA 
advisor and a member of the 
PBJC faculty, to make another 
statement," said Miss McNeely in 
her latest letter to the Senate. 

"You as Senators, made a de- 
cision to accept the conduct in 
question, I cannot." The SGA ad- 
viser was referring to a motion 
riade three weeks ago to impeach 
iVilkins because of his actions 
#hich the Senate defeated by a 15- 
11 vote. 

The suspended Senator resigned 
two weeks ago from his office as 
President Pro Tern of the Senate. 
For the duration of the suspen- 
sion, Wilkins is stripped of all 
senatorial duties, rights, and

Tiros Nwea Leaves Iraq 
To Attend College Here 

by Gayle McElroy 

'Comber Feature Editor 

Camels are NOT the main 
method of travel in Iraq. In fact 
Tiras Nwea, Assyrian sophomore 
attending PBJC, relates the amus- 
ing incident that he had "never 
even SEEN a camel until visiting 
Searstown, West Palm Beach." 

Tiras left Basrah, Iraq, twe-and- 
one-half years ago with the pur- 
pose of being on his own and "at- 
tending college in America." After 
touring Europe and studying' at 
PBJC, he now sees more clearly 
his aims in life. 

, For the past two years Tiras has 
been interested in karate and judo. 
He explained that his country 
places a lot of emphasis and pride 
on sports. 

His present plans include major- 
ing in physical education at FAU 
and receiving his M.A. at U of F. 
He then wants to study in Japan 
for a year and become finished in 
karate and judo before visiting 
Europe and returning home. Tiras

delicate art of cooking. One of his 
favorite dishes is bariane, which fie 
described as containing "rice, cur-

Comparing American women to 
women of his country, Tiras stated 
that "Women of Iraq are consid-

"You never see a woman In Iraq

as in America you mostly see just 
American styles."

Governor's Proposal

proposed budget cut may have on our cam- 
pus. Dr. Manor said that the Governor's pro- 
posal is based on "erroneous assumptions." 

Graduates Hear Dr. Champion 

Urge Educational Investment 

The largest graduating class in 
PBJC's history heard Dr. John E. 
Champion, president of Florida 
State University, cite the pressing 
need for increased attention to 
higher education at commence- 
ment exercises May 5. 

In his address, Dr. Champion 
told some 360 graduates that "So- 
ciety stands in a desperate need 
of scholars and critics. Education 
is a form of investment rather 
than a consuming pursuit. On a 
practical side, investment in edu- 
cation is the best way to stimulate 
economic growth and increase per- 
sonal income." 

However, Dr f Champion warned 
his audience not to think of mone- 
tary rewards as the only purpose 

for pursuing higher education. "A 
far nobler goal is that of discover- 
ing new knowledge purely for its 
sake. This is what education is 
all about." 

A second point of Dr. Champion's 
speech was the need for more in- 
dividual responsibility. "Our coun- 
try became great through individ- 
ual effort," he said, "And 'now, 
more than ever, we need to accept 
our obligations and responsibili- 
ties. We should be as quick to take 
obligations as we are to take priv- 
ileges and rights " 

Following Dr. Champion's ad- 
dress, Elbert E. Bishop, registrar 
of PBJC for 30 years, presented 
his last graduating class to col- 
lege president Dr. Harold C. Man- 
or Bishop pointed out that this 

class had the highest overall aver- 
age of any he had seen in his 
many years as a professional edu- 
cator Bishop will retire June 30.

'Comber Nowb Ijaitor 

Governor Claude Kirk's proposal 
to reduce funds at Florida junior 
colleges might result in higher 
fees for PBJC students, as well as 
other setbacks. 

At a general staff meeting last 
week, Or. Harold C. Manor, PBJC 
President, said that the Gover- 
nor's proposal would cause PBJC 
a loss of $525,218 if figured in this 
year's budget, 

Dr. Manor added that the loss 
would necessitate one or more of 
the following adjustments: 

1. Reduce all staff by approxi- 
mately one-fourth, or 

2. Eliminate a number of pro- 
grams now offered and curtail 
custodial and maintenance serv- 
ices, or 

3. Raise fees 'by 115 per cent, or 

4. Ask the Palm Beach County 
Board of Public Instruction to levy 
ad valorem taxes to make up the 
difference, or 

5. Actually increase our faculty- 
student ratio to 1-32 (our present 
ratio is approximately 1-23). 

The President pointed out that, 
since the County Board of Public 
Instruction has been interested in 
lowering real estate taxes the 
chances of their yielding to a peti- 
tion to do otherwise are very 

English Major Receives 
Mfafson Duncan Award 

Heinrich R. Bettich, a West Palm 
Beach sophomore, is the recipient 
of the $200 Watson Duncan Schol- 
arship for the Fall of 1967, an- 
nounced Watson B. Duncan, III, 
chairman of the Communications 

The scholarship goes annually to 
a PBJC sophomore who is major- 
ing in English. 

Bettich, wno has made the 
Dean's list for two semesters here, 
plans to be a writer and perhaps 
a teacher of literature. "I am 
m ajoring in English because this 
field of study offers an unlimited 
survey of the world's finest litera- 
ture," Bettich said. 

"In the field of English I will 
have the opportunity not only to 
read literature but also to share 
the experiences and knowledge of 
my teachers." 

The scholarship grant is made 
possible by the series of "Adven- 
tures in Learning" lectures in lit- 
erature given by Duncan each 
week in Palm Beach. 

Duncan's next lecture will be on 
Wednesday, May 17, when he re- 
views the 1967 Pulitzer Prize 
Novel, "The Fixer" by Bernard 
Mala mud. 

The series, now in its fifth sea- 
son, was started by a group of 
interested Palm Beach women and 
named after Duncan.

ELBERT E. BISHOP, registrar of PBJC for the past 30 years,

PBJC President. Seated is Dr. John E. Champion, commence- 
ment speaker and President of Florida State University. 

slim. "Likelihood will be to raise 
tuition instead of raising real 
estate taxes," he indicated. 

"Governor Kirk's proposal is 
based on erroneous assumptions," 
declared Dr. Manor. 

He added that school personnel 
should study Kirk's proposal care- 
fully and asked them to contact 
the county's legislative delegation 
and the governor. "They will prob- 
ably act according to the public 
response," Dr. Manor said. 

The President explained that 
Governor Kirk justified his pro- 
posal on the "erroneous assump- 
tion" that the 1-26 ratio in the 
lower division of the universities 
was based on a formula compar- 
able to that used in the junior 
college level. 

"Our M2 ratio for the first 420 
full-time equivalent students' a 
1-15 beyond that point is a me 
of distributing support funds 
has no relationship to the £ 
faculty-student ratio of 1-25 
exists at the junior colleges 
state average," he comment 

Dr. Manor said that he felt 
state "gets more for its educat 
dollar in the junior college le 
than in any other post-seconda 

"The entire constituency of the 
legislative delegation should be 
thoroughly informed on this is- 
sue," concluded the President. 

In a telegram sent to Tallahas- 
see early last week, Dr. Manor 
said "Your proposal would necf 
sitate the release of at least 
per cent and perhaps one-third 
the present staff. Unselected : 
dents do not do well in large It 
ture sections. This would shift' th 
major responsibility of the junioi 
colleges from the State to the 
county. I urge you to restudy this 

Dr. Manor and S. M. Fluellyn, 
a West Palm Beach businessman 
who has been a member of the 
College Advisory Committee for 
several years, traveled to Talla- 
hassee Tuesday to explain to the 
Palm Beach County legislators the 
effects that the proposed budget 
would have on PBJC. 

"We have been assured by Rep. 
Robert C. DeYoung, chairman of 
the delegation, that we will meet 
with the legislators, either as a 
group or as individuals, during th< 
day," said Dr. Manor. 

The Tallahassee trip grew out 
of a meeting of the Advisory Com- 
mittee, where Dr. Manor ex- 
plained the serious nature of the 
financial loss to PBJC in the 
governor's budget proposal. 

"The Advisory Committee feft 
that our legislators should be fully 
informed of the effect the loss of 
more than a half million dollars in 
operating income would have on 
the college," Dr. Manor said, "and 
suggested that I contact Rep. De-

Florida First? 

If Governor Kirk's proposed educational budget is ap- 
proved, PBJC will be set back several years. 

Many of the programs that people have worked so hard 
to achieve and which have made PBJC one of the foremost 
junior colleges in the nation would be scrapped or seriously 
curtailed upon the budget approval. 

The financial blow dealt to the college would necessitate 
radical changes which would eventually affect every student. 

Programs may be discontinued, staff significantly reduced, 
and tuition fees sharply raised. 

The Palm Beach County School Board has indicated that, 
unless many of the proposed cuts to state aids to education are 
blocked by the legislature, it will be "forced to curtail or 
eliminate" athletics and transportation programs, among other 

Students .from the Belle Glade area who now use the 
school-provided bus as means of transportation to and from 
PBJC would be deprived of this service. 

Even these drastic, but nevertheless necessary, measure.., 
may not be enough to ease the effects of the loss of more than 
half a million dollars of needed money. 

The teacher-student ratio would probably be increased 
considerably on our campus, thus destroying a long established 
philosophy of closer supervision. 

A possible alternative would be to ask the Palm Beach 
County School Board to make up the difference with new local 
*axes. Governor Kirk promised no new taxes, but the taxpayers 
f Palm Beach County, many of whom are of the same political 
[filiation as the governor, would realize that he did not keep 
is promise when they receive their tax bill, whether it is for 
>cal or state taxes. 

Since the School Board has repeatedly made known its 
intention of holding down the line on new taxes, it is very 
unlikely that adequate help to PBJC would come from that 

Many Florida educators and administrators have pointed, 
out to Kirk that his proposed budget is based upon erroneous 
assumptions. To date he has refused to re-evaluate his infor- 

The governor has promised to make Florida "first in edu- 
cation." The recommended cuts of several million dollars in 
state aid to education can hardly be seen as a step in that 

It is up to you, the students of PBJC, to voice your opinion 
to the Palm Beach legislative delegation and to encourage 
your parents and friends to do likewise. 

An articulated, factual letter, free from emotional over- 
tones or political inferences may be the decisive factor influenc- 
ing a legislator's final vote on the issue. 

We urge you to express your opinion to your representa- 
tives. It is not only your right, but also your duty as free and 
responsible citizens to make sure that education in Florida 
takes a step forward. 

Immediate action is imperative.

30,000 Writers Needed 

ssport To Adventure" 
s Journalism Students 

by Carolyn Pope 

'Comber Staff Writer 

"The best passport to adventure 
in the 20th Century is a press pass. 
Being a reporter is like having a 
seat on the 50-yard line watching 
history as it happens," says Quill, 
magazine for journalists. 

"History in the making— that is 
the raw material for journalism 
Writing, editing, speaking and pic- 
turing the news— this is the job of 
the professional journalist." These 
are the words of Walter Cronkite. 

Journalism is a field that is as 
refreshing and unpredictable as a 
new day. Yet, as Wes Gallenger, 
general manager of the Associated 
Press expresses, "The qualifica- 
tions for the journalist are funda- 
mentally the same, with one ex- 
ception—he must have a far great- 
er educational background to deal 
with news today." 

There are presently about 22,500 
men and women who are doing 
away with this exception by seek- 
ing formal preparation in the pro- 

Here at PBJC, there are a num- 
ber of students who feel that jour- 
nalism is "the" field for them 
When asked why: 

Gayle McElroy, associate editor 
if the Beachcomber, replied, "It 

ves you a chance to meet and 

Ik to important people, which 

ider normal circumstances, 

ould be practically impossible." 

Tom Fedele, an " advertising 
najor and sports writer for the 
'Comber, finds that "Journalism 
is challenging. Every story I write 
is new and different." 

Ask any 'Comber writer what 
his feelings are when he sees his 
work in print and you're bound to 
get an exuberated, heartfelt reply 
to the effect, as Fedele puts it: 
"There's nothing quite like it." 

Knowing how to write is the big 
"must" for news reporting. If you 
know grammar, spelling, syntax, 
and the correct use of antecedents, 
you have acquired the basic prep- 
arations for press work. However, 
this factor alone, by no means, 
secures your future as a journalist. 

Security lies in your love for the 
profession. Your undying efforts 
to search out the truth, and report 
the truth. 

As James Kilpatrick, editor of 
the Richmond (Va ") News Leader, 
stated in Quill: "You'll go out to 
cover your beat with the small 
suppressed feeling in your heart 
or a hunter after game or a knight 
on quest." 

There may be nothing more ex- 
citing to report than the police 
blotter today, but tomorrow there's 
a mass riot and chaos. You'll find 
grief in one story, happiness in 
another. You may go to a migrant 
camp today, you may be attend- 
ing the governor's press confer- 
ence, tomorrow. 

The least of all worries for a po- 
tential journalist is finding ajob. 

Quill stated m a recent issue 
that 30,000 more journalists would 
still be needed by 1970, as this 
total was predicted two years ear- 
lier in a similar issue. There are 
some 1,700 to 1,800 daily newspa- 
pers in the country and there's not 
one that can't use "intelligent 
young men and women with skill 
in the English language." 

There are a variety of job op- 
portunities that stem from jour- 
nalism besides the fundamental 
writing and reporting for the mass 
media — newspapers, magazines, 
radio, television and advertising. 

Some 100,000 men and women 
are presently employed in some 
form of public relations work for 
the thousands of institutions of 
every conceivable type— business 
firms, trade associations, civic 
organizations, colleges, social work

government bureaus and schools. 

Opportunities in media research 
are vast and important to the 
press enterprise. Because this job 
requires more specialized training 
than other journalism occupations, 
starting salaries of $6000 to $8000 
can be expected. 

Journalism teaching as a career 
has many rewards, also. 

The pay for work in newspapers 
varies according to the circulation 
of the paper and position. 

Newspapers with top circulation 
of over 150,000 average $5,608 for 
beginner writers and $16,527 for 
managing editors. 

The magazine area of journalism 
offers some of the highest sal-

Club reports that "according to 
the stockholders reports, it is not 
uncommon for publishers and top 
editors of large consumer maga- 
zines to earn $50,000 to $100,000 a 
year." Starting salaries for col- 
lege graduates vary from $5,200 
a year to $8,000. 

Broadcast journalists receive an 
even higher salary. A well-trained 
network correspondent may earn 
from $20,000 to $30,000 a year or 
more, depending on. the contract 
he has with the organization.

Campus Advertising 

The Faculty Senate recently re- 
vised the rules on publicizing off- 
campus programs. 

The legislative group unani- 
mously carried a motion stating 
that the approval for on-campus 
display of materials publicizing 
events or activities of any nature 
shall be based solely on two cri- 
teria: "(1) The materials must 
be germane to legitimate student 
and/or faculty interests and/or 
concerns, and (2) the materials 
must contain no libel or obscen- 
ity," said the motion. 

Students, representatives of "off- 
campus" groups, and other indi- 
viduals will continue to obtain 
approval to display materials on 
campus from the Office of the 
Dean of Student Personnel. 

Materials displayed on depart- 
mental bulletin boards by faculty 
members need only the approval 
of the department chairman in 

Inquiries or complaints concern- 
ing on-campus publicizing are to 

be stated in writing to the Faculty 
Affairs Committee. 

"The Faculty Affairs Committee 
shall be responsible for studying 
such questions, complaints, or alle- 
gations and shall seek to deter- 
mine whether the display material 
in question in any manner vio- 
lates the established criteria," 
said the motion passed by the 
Faculty Senate. 

While such investigation is tak- 
ing place, the materials being 
questioned will remain in display 
until a recommendation is made 
by the investigating committee. 

"Final approval or disapproval 
for on-campus display of materials 
publicizing events or activities of 
any nature shall rest with the 
Faculty Affairs Committee," con- 
cluded the approved motion. 

The decision made by the Fac- 
ulty Senate will go before the 
College Advisory Committee and 
then be submitted to the Board of 
Public Instruction before it can 
be implemented.

of his nation-wide search for tal- 
ented college students. 

Foy, who comes from a long

himself before joining the casting 
department of Screen Gems in 
1961, held readings for a number 
of PBJC drama students Thursday 
night On Saturday morning, he

"On the basis of these read-

whether any of these students 
should be signed to an option to 
the studio and given a screen test. 
I am very impressed by the ability 
of several of the young people I 
have seen here." 

If any of the students that Foy 
interviewed shows promising tal- 
ent, the person will be flown to 
California to take a screen test 
and be evaluated by the Studio. 
The result of this could be a 
seven-year contract and the star- 
ring role in a television series.

The Beachcomber .has received 
several replies from stale legisla- 
tors as to their position concern- 
ing the school budget proposed by 
Governor Claude Kirk. The pro- 
posed budget would deprive PBJC 
of more than half a million dollars 
in state funds. 

Answering inquiries made by 
this reporter were Representatives 
Jack Poorbaugh, Robert C. De 
Young, and Joseph W. Humphrey. 

"I personally agree with the 
approach to education that Gover- 
nor Claude Kirk has made. In 
general terms, I know that there 
are many areas where substan- 
tial savings can be effected with 
more prudent, businesslike opera- 
tions," said Representative Poor- 

He added that he believed that 
"the Governor said that no child 
would go without books or would 
not have his lunch because his 
family was too poor to provide the 
same. I do believe that higher 
tuition fees have been suggested 

for out colleges and I would cer- 
tainly vote to inr tease these fees 
a reasonable amount " 

In his lettoi, Representative De 
Young said that "being a busi- 
nessman myself, I am very con- 
cerned about running the State on 
a businesslike basis, and I am 
sure that once everybody under- 
stands that this is being done foi 
the welfare of the entire State of 
Florida, there will be very little 
opposition to his (Governor 
Kirk's) total progiam" 

Representative De Young 
said: "I assure you that, as a 
member of the Appropuations 
Committee, I am going to take 
this item by item and thmoughly 
study each one." 

Representative Humphrey said 
that he felt that "many of the 
points that Governor Kirk brought 
out are excellent. However, I have 
misgivings upon the stated posi- 
tion of junior colleges and a 
couple of other items " 

He concluded that, he was con- 
vinced that this "is not a program

National recognition seems to come easily 
to Jim Houser these days. 

In the past two years, the PBJC art instruc- 
tor and chairman of the Art Department has 
compiled an impressive list of honors. 

The latest two include a one-man show in 
New York which opens May 23, and an invita- 
tion to display a painting at the National Mid- 
Year Show, held at the Butler Institute of 
American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. 

Houser's fortunes in his art career have 
taken a dramatic turn for the better since he 
changed styles of painting in 1963. "Before that 
time," he recalls, "I did most of my work in 
abstract expressionism. But gradually I came 
to realize that this painting style was not the 
best way to say what I had to say." 

"I was reasonably successful during this 
period, and even won a few prizes. But I had 
gotten into a rut, and I felt a need to break 
away from this style of painting." 

So for a year Houser did no painting. In- 
stead, he searched for another, better way to 
express himself

No Time To Fight 

As the 1967 Florida Legislature moves into its final 
stages, a battle between Democrats and Republicans over the 
various issues on hand seems inevitable. 

Caught amidst the revolving currents of the imminent par- 
tisan showdown is the future of education in this state. 

The use of the educational issue as political ammunition 
is a dangerous practice which may plunge it into the dark 
depths of chaos. 

It is time that our legislators pause and recognize the issue 
as what it is: The prosperity ox destruction of education in our 
state, the future of our youth. 

It will indeed be a sad day for Florida when political 
ambitions are placed before the State's educational welfare. 

We can only hope that our representatives make certain 
that such a day never arrives by placing their duty to the 
people first. 

Board Bugs Cupido 

The old proverb, "You're not losing a daughter, but gain- 
ing a son," does not apply to PB]C. Because of an intraf acuity 
marriage between two members of the Health, Home Eco- 
nomics and Physical Education Department, PBJC may "keep 
a son, but will lose a daughter." 

While the decision of the two, Coach Jack Stockton and 
the former Miss Mary Mclntyre, for Stockton to be the one to 
remain on the faculty, we think the system whereby a choice 
is forced upon them by the Board of Instruction regulations 
is an archaic custom. 

When did the teaching profession obtain such a surplus 
of qualified personnel that they can afford to practice this 
antiquated ritual? According to Mr. Charlie Wilson, director 
of personnel for the Board of Instruction, Palm Beach County 
is already short 150 teachers this year. 

Must a woman doctor give up practice in the same hos- 
pital or building, merely because she marries another doctor? 

Women physical education instructors at this level with a 
Masters Degree are hard to find. 

It seems there'll be a vacancy in the faculty, though, due 
to the unanimous ruling of die Board of Instruction, effective 
the 1959-60 school year, stating that, "Wherever possible to 
avoid placing husband and wife as teachers in the same school. 
Any exceptance must be approved by the Board." 

An exceptance WAS made at PBJC last vear, however 
when both Mr. and Mrs. Harris McGirt were on the payroll 
-Mrs. McGirt, part-time employee, was hired to replace an ill 
faculty member. 

We saw no repercussions of this relationship and would 
like to see this outmoded ruling dropped. 

Step-Saving Step 

Growing from Florida's oldest public junior college to one 
of its largest and most progressive, PBJC is soon to enter a 
new realm with updated and improved registration procedures. 

In the past, students have been forced to fit the courses 
offered. If a student wanted or needed a course that was 
closed, even if it was his major, nothing could be done about it. 

Computer pre-registration, completed in the winter term 
for next fall, makes possible the idea of the courses fitting the 
students. If a large enough number of students request a 
v-onrse. there is time to open more sections in that subject. 
In this respect the courses are being worked around the stu- 
dent, rather than the students around the courses. 

Computer registration is a process new to us. It is certain 
to have problems no one is aware of, but at least it is a step 
in the right direction. And anyone who has stood in the regis- 
tration lines for any length of time will appreciate that step 
to save steps. 


256 students have been included 
in the Dean's List for the Winter 
Term 1967, according to Registrar 
Elbert E. Bishop. 

In order to be placed on -the 
Dean's List, a student must take

hes It Mem? 

by Jose Carbfa 

'Comber Staff Writer 

What's in a name? An individ- 
ual, an independent entity or the 
portrayal of infinite human emo- 

Why did Shakespeare choose to 
give the name of Hamlet or 
Othello to two of his most famous 

Was it just the name or the 
characteristics of Human Nature 
itself? If so, what is behind a 
name such as Tom Jones? 

Man, since the art of communi- 
cation was first used, has tried 
to project his own experiences to 
ether men, so that the process 
could form new ideas and con- 
cepts, and, in that way, these men 
could find creative expression of 

Following the same pattern of 
thought, "Tom Jones" means 
more than just a name. As in 
Shakespeare's "Othello" and 
"Hamlet," it gives the observer 
a picture of human qualities in 
action, but, unlike these two, 
"Tom Jones" uses humor "to 
laugh mankind out of their favor- 
ite follies and vices." 

PBJC students will have the op- 
portunity of experiencing the emo- 
tions that "Tom Jones" provides 
in the form of a theatrical pro- 
duction to be presented here on 
June 1, 2, 3 and 4 by the drama 

The audience will not only be 
exposed to the most comical situ- 
ations found in English literature, 
but, as the director of the pro- 
duction, Mr. Frank Leahy, com- 
mented: "they will also find this 
farce to depict the hyprocritical 
features of mankind which still 
exist today. 

Tom Jones was written by 
Henry Fielding in the 1750s and 
it is still considered a masterpiece 
of English literature.

Pacer Mentor 
Signs 2 Cagers 

For '67 Season 

Coach Jim Tanner has signed 
two new ball players for the 1967- 
68 Pacer basketball team. 

The two prospective PBJC 
cagers are Jerry Bullard and Joe 

Bullard is a 6-5 center from Riv- 
iera Beach High School who 
averaged 14 points per game for 
the Hornets. 

Also a 6-5 center, Palumbo is to 
graduate from Orlando Evans 
High School. Palumbo averaged 
an impressive 16 points per game 
at the Orlando school. 

These two additions to the Pacer 
team should give it the height

lacked in the past. 

Returning on a scholarship is

North Palm Beach, Florida 

After finishing a strong fourth in the state junior college 
tennis tournament, the tennis team is looking ahead to next 
year with great expectations. 

Coach Harris McGirt said that he was a little disappointed 
in the team's standing. He thought that they should have made 
it to third which would have qualified them for the nationals. 

The team is losing only two members this year though, so 
they should have a fine chance to be tops in the state next year. 

Boh Robr and number one man John Darst are the men 
who won't be hack. Both arc key members to the team, and 
might prove hard to replace. 

But McGirt already has lines cast all over the stale. He said 
that he didn't have any commitments yet, but he has the leads. 

With our record, it shouldn't be too hard to get the horses 
needed to continue the winning tradition that this year's team 

McGirt has said previously that he wants PBJC to be a 
power in tennis, and his enthusiasm is hard to resist. 

* * * 

One thing that we have going for us in recruiting that 
may or may not ha've been stressed previously is the school's 
high academic standing on the national level. 

The last time I looked PBJC was ranked second among all 
junior colleges in this category by a national magazine. We 
should not make the prospects think that the school is too 
difficult, though. 

We just happen to have instructors who cave, and classes 
that are small enough to insure individual attention most of 
the time.

Dr. Harold €. Manor, PBJC

returned from Tallahassee last 
week "encouraged -about operating 
funds for Florida junior colleges," 
Dr. Manor said. 

"We took factual information up 
to our legislators about the effect 
of Governor Claude Kirk's pro- 
posed one-third cut in state sup- 
port for Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege," he said. 

"We were delighted with our 
general reception, and the intelli- 
gent interest legislators from our 
cpunty have in Palm Beach Junior 

Dr. Manor said he did not seek 
or receive commitments from the 
legislators, and did not discuss the 
overall educational problems with 
which the legislators are wrestling. 

"One thing is certain, however," 
Dr. Manor commented, "our legis- 
lators do not want to do anything 
that will seriously damage the jun- 
ior college." 

Alternate methods of obtaining 
the more than half-million dollars 
which would be lost by the change 
in support formula were discussed, 

Dr. Manor indicated, including 
possible increases in tuition costs 
to students and additional support

spring of 1963," Houser says. "One 

day I looked at the mailbox in 
my front yard, and saw the repre- 
sentation of a simple idea which 
had deep meaning for me " 

The painting which Houser did 
of that mailbox was the first in 
a chain of pictures done m a 
simple style which has since be- 
come representative of all his re- 
cent works. 

"After this style change," says 
Houser, "I began to win more 
awards than I had ever received 
for any of my abstract paintings." 

In December of 1964, a painting 
done in acrylics, Houser's current 
style, won first place at the Soci- 
ety of Four Arts Exhibition. The 
next year he won the Channmg 
Hare Award at the Four Arts with 
a painting entitled "Afternoon." 

Other awards and honors include 
selection for the Virgil Barker 
Memorial collection of American 
art at the Lowe Art Gallery at the 
University of Miami, a first place 
purchase award at the annual 
exhibition at the Ft. Lauderdale 
Museum, a one-man show at Ft 

Lauderdale, and another at Flor- 
ida Atlantic University 

National art publications have 
also begun to take note of Hou- 
ser's work. In both the 1965 and 

1966 issues of "Prizewinning Paint- 
ings," pictures painted by Houser 
have been featured. And the May 

1967 issue of Art News has repro- 
duced one of his pictures, along 
with a short biographical sketch.

He Plays A 
With A Fat 

by George Nevin 

'Comber Feature Editor 

They were seated on the bench, 
giggling at each other, when we 
came in. We made our way quietly 
to the back of the room and sat 

"How's everything with you'" 
the girl was asking with a smile 

"Oh," the boy chortled, almost 
laughing out loud, "I've been fine. 
I'm so surprised to see you here. 
I just can't get over it. It's been 
so long since we last saw each 

"Yes, it most certainly has," 
she replied. She looked as though 
she had thought of a joke and was 
grinning about it even as she 
carried on another conversation. 
"Everything has gone so "well with 
me. How about you?" 

Eddie Foy III sat in front of 
me. He was bent over, elbows on 
the desk top in front of him, head 
in hands. His eyes were closed, 
but I knew he was concentrating 
on the little tableau in front of us. 

Foy is a Hollywood talent scout. 
He is on a tour of the country, 
looking for promising young ac- 
tors and actresses. He was at 
PBJC last Saturday, holding read- 
ings for a few members of the 
"Tom Jones" cast. 

The boy and the girl m the front 
were still exchanging pleasantries 
Foy looked up at them, and said, 

They stood up, walked back to 
the desks, and sat down. Another 
boy and girl took their places. The 
boy looked uncomfortable and hot 
in a sports jacket. The girl had 
short, springy hair and a faceful 
of freckles. The boy sat down in 
a chair and picked up a news- 
paper. The girl stood a few feet 
in front of him. 

From the back of the room, 
Foy said, "Take it from 'If I were 
standing in an arch . . .' " 

The girl sighed and asked the 
boy, "If I were standing in an 
arch about two miles away from 
you, could you see me?" 

This is much better. It is more 
absorbing, more believable. The 
motions seem natural, and the 
conversation is not forced. The 
scene continues, and ends as the 
two embrace and kiss. 

"All right, that's all I want for 
now," Foy tells the two. He turns 
to include the rest of the group. 
"You may all go now. I've got to 
talk to these people, and then I'll 
be out to discuss some more 
things with a few of you." They

all leave, talking as they drift 
out the door in groups of two and 

Eddie Foy certainly doesn't look 
like the stereotype of a talent scout. 
He isn't 45, isn't fat, and doesn't 
smoke a cigar. He is 32 and looks 
vaguely like an athlete 

He is a unique man — unique 
because the company for which he 
works, Screen Gems, is the only 
major television studio which 
sends out recruiters to search for 
new, talented faces. 

"The movie studios used to do 
this," he said, "but now even they 
have abandoned the practice. All 
of the TV studios will be watching 
us at Screen Gems to see if we 
are successful." 

He lit a cigarette and continued. 
"These students here have shown 
great promise. I have three in 
mind who I want to talk with 
again before I make a decision " 

Someone asked what would hap- 
pen if he decided to take positive 
action on one or more of the three. 

"Then I would sign an option 
on them," he said. "This would 
be nothing more than a promise 
on their part not to sign a con- 
tract with any other studio for the 
duration of the option. For this 
we give the person a small sum 
of money. 

"By doing this we guarantee 
him nothing. In three months 
or so we might bring him to Cali- 
fornia for a screen test, and then 
send him home. If the test were 
to turn out favorably, we would 
bring him back to Hollywood, sign 
him to a standard 7-year contract, 
and begin to train him. In a year 
or so .he might be appearing m his 
own television series." 

Foy's tour began a few weeks 
ago m Texas. He will be in Miami, 
Boca Raton, Tampa, Gainesville, 
and Tallahassee later this week. 

Foy gave two reasons why he 
included Palm Beach Junior Col- 
lege in his tour. "First, two prod- 
ucts of this theater" — he pointed 
to the auditorium stage where ac- 
tors were rehearsing for "Tom 
Jones" — "have been signed to 
Screen Gems contracts in the past 
They are Burt Reynolds, who ap- 
peared in 'Hawk,' and Monty 
Markham of the new series, 'The 

Second Hundred Years ' This ,: 
more than a coincidence 

"Second, I came here becaua 
of Watson B. Duncan. He drasi 
talent to this theater. This is 4 
ways true of exceptional men. So 
we watch the Palm Beach ara 
and it seems to pay off." 

Foy put out his cigarette a-i 
stood up. "I've got to go," he tt 
plained. "First I'll have to flics 
about these kids and what fe. 
did here today. Then I'll talk *j 
the ones I've selected." 

He walked out the door A:i

dents until today might be ad&i

If Governor Vetoes Bill 

Studenf Action May Be Require 

by Raul Ramirez 

'Comber Editor-in-Chief 

PBJC students may again be 
forced to voice their opinions to 
the Palm Beach County legislative 

Proposals recently made by 
House and Senate groups ig- 
nored the budget cuts suggested 
by the Governor in his televised 
address several weeks ago, and 
it is rumored in legislative 
groups that Governor Kirk may 
veto any appropriations not fol- 
lowing his proposal. 

The Governor's proposed budg- 
et met strong objections through- 
out the state from educators, stu- 
dents, and professional organiza- 
tions, such as the Classroom 

Teachers Association and the Flor- 
ida Education Association. 

CTA Executive Secretary Dr. 
Carl Blair said that "The adop- 
tion of this program would be a 
day of disaster for the children 
of Florida." 

Dr. Blair also said that "In 
essence, the governor said: 'Go 
back to the counties for money 
to educate Florida's children. We 
are going to save money at the 
state level.' " 

State School Superintendent 
Floyd Christian charged that Gov- 
ernor Kirk had failed to obtain 
professional advice on education 

before recommending school budg- 
et cuts. 

Concerning the proposal, House 
Speaker Ralph Turlington stated: 
"I learned that many of the rec- 
ommendations were simply based 
on incomplete or erroneous infor- 
mation. For instance, the junior 
college recommendation is just 

Governor Kirk recommended re- 
ducing state support for junior 
colleges by 25 per cent. No other 
educational programs in the state 
would be cut below existing stand- 
ards except junior colleges. 

If adopted, the Governor's 
proposal would have resulted in 
a loss for PBJC of $525,218, fig- 
ured in this year's budget. 

PBJC President Dr. Harold C. 

Manor indicated at the time that 
the cut would necessitate drastic 
changes here. 

Some of these changes would be 
to raise tuition fees by 115%, in- 
crease of our faculty-student ra- 
tio to 1-32 (our present: ratio is 
1-23), and elimination of various 
programs offered. 

Dr. Manor and S. M. Fluel-

Performers Use 'Bits And Insertions' 
To Make Tom Jones' A Witty Farce 

by Gary Breltenbeck 

'Comber Staff Writer 

The curtain rises. Actors, dress- 
ed in the garb of the 18th century, 
frolic across the stage, whooping, 
and hollering, in 4/4 time. Sud- 
denly the entire cast freezes, 
locks into position. The history of 
Tom Jones begins. 

"Tom Jones," the next college 
production, is a olay based on the 
novel by Henry Fielding. Some 

will remember a movie a tew 
years ago by the same title — 
rollicking, bawdy, witty. The play, 
for all its rollicking "fun," lacks 
some of this rawness: " but what 
little it lacks in this respect it 
more than makes up in wit. 

Wandering through the marble 
poses of the actors is the Par- 
tridge, the narrator, played by 
John Murphy. He begins with a 
brief introduction. 
This type of technique is termed 

presentation; the audience is di- 
rectly addressed and in a sense 
takes part in the play. We are 
even told "to leel free to hiss" at 
one of the characters at our pleas- 
ure. This type of drama is highly 
popular at PBJC, and usually one 
play of this kind is produced dur- 
ing the season. 

The Partridge, who has contin- 
ued to bounce about introducing 
the characters, informs us that 
"many actors will be playing more 

PBJC Counselors Attend 
Conference In Pensacola 

than one part." One, Geoffrey Bin- 
ney, will in fact be playing three. 
Finally, he introduces the lovely 
heroine Sophia, played by an even 
lovelier Laura Lee Aithey, and 
the foundling hero, Tom Jones, 
played by Burt Merriam. 

The Partridge concludes by 
telling us that the story takes 
place long ago when the world 
was "indeed wicked, bawdy, and 
licentious." With this the actors

Young, Repubhcan-Pinellas "Park, 
told reporters that he would rec- 
ommend that the Governor veto 
the proposals passed by the Ap- 
priations Committees in the House 
of Representatives. 

The bill, House Bill 1235, would 
restore to the budget most of 
the funds Governor Kirk would 
cut, including the 66 million dol-

House Bill 1235 also eliminates 
waiting for a year to obtain finan- 
cial support for increased enroll- 
ment, and piovides an increase in 
support for the junior college in- 
structional unit of $1,200-$1,500. 

If the Governor decides to

required in both the House and

this and future workshops: 

1. To bring together student and 
personnel practitioners from the 
staffs of Florida's many commu-

2. To provide opportunities for 
them to talk together about many 
areas of common concern,

Something For Nothing 

Gift pacs, containing several dollars worth of useful 
products, have been given to the students for several years. 
Long lines in the SAC Lounge to receive the merchandise, 
leave little to be said about their popularity. 

The students were the ones who benefitted, both from the 
value of the products distributed as well as being paid to 
distribute them. 

A decision by the Administrative Council, composed of 
several top campus administrators, has clamped down on re- 
lated county policy adopted in 1965, according to Mrs, Eliza- 
beth Davey, dean of women. 

The policy states that, "Neither the facilities, the staff, 
nor the children of the school shall be employed in any man- 
ner for advertising oi otherwise promoting the interests of 
any commercial, political or other nonschool agency, indi- 
vidual, or organization." 

"We feel such a policy should refer to exactly who it 
says, "children." There are few who would dispute the fact 
that junior college students are no longer children, yet this 
is the same policy our own Student Personnel division has 
seen fit to enforce only recently. 

A revision of the policy HAS been made concerning 
advertising off-campus events on bulletin boards (see story 
page 3). 

Other types of advertising are also viewed around cam- 
pus. Many classroom films bear either the name of Bell Tele- 
phone or Standard Oil. Job opportunities are advertised in 
the daily bulletin. Magazine subscriptions are sold on campus. 
Branches of the service encourage enlistees with on-campus 
display of materials. 

These are all examples of successful campus advertising, 
why not add gift pacs to the list? 

Lack Of Action 

"Actions speak louder than words," goes the old saying. 
But there are times when lack of action speaks even louder. 

Scarcely seven months ago the SGA constitution was 
amended to provide for the formation of six student boards to 
be part of the student organization's executive department. 

The amendment states that "the chairman of each board 
shall be appointed, by the incoming SGA president." 

Mr. Parker has apparently overlooked the fact that this 
is one of his most important duties. To date, the only 
chairman which he has semi-offieially appointed is Bruce 
Adams, chairman of the Spirit and Traditions Board. 

In organizing the upcoming dance, the five members of 
the Spirit and Traditions Board have been forced to assume 
duties normally performed by other boards, such as handling 
decorations and publicity for the event. 

We urge Mr. Parker to make the needed appointments 
without further delay. 

The Beachcomber hopes that Mr. Parker's premature lack 
of action is not a sign of the type of leadership that awaits 
SGA in the upcoming year.

Ralph Kehoe Wins Award For 
Hiring Handicapped Employees 

J. Ralph Kehoe, manager of the 
cafeteria, has been cited as the 
Employer of the Year by the Flor- 
ida Association of Retarded Chil- 
dren for his work with the men- 
tally retarded. 

Kehoe, who has headed Prophet 
Company operations on campus 
for only a year, has employed as 
many as six handicapped persons 
at a time during the past year. 
"Next year," he says, "I hope 
to hire two full-time girls and 
five to seven part time handi- 
capped workers." 
It was this involvment in em- 
ploying the retarded that won Ke- 
hoe the recognition. The prize was 
awarded at the association's an- 
nual convention in Ft. Lauderdale 
last week. 

"All of the handicapped employ- 
ees have come from the Palm 
Beach Rehabilitation Center lo- 
cated near PBJC," Kehoe says. 
"Whenever I have an opening, I 
call Mr. Dennis at the center and 
he sends someone over." 

"I only have one condition— 
everyone I hire must admit 
that he or she is handicapped. 
The reason is that hiring these 
people is a form of rehabilita- 
tion, and the first step is admit- 
ting that a handicap exists." 
When a handicapped person first 
comes to work, Kehoe talks to 

him, and then puts him to work 
with one of his employees who 
has a lot of patience. 

"I have found that it is impor- 
tant to use patience in dealing 
with these people," says Kehoe. 
"But with the proper encourage- 
ment, they become excellent, very 
productive workers." 

"I don't expect quite as much 
out of them as I do my regular 
workers, but they very often 
surprise me. However, I don't 
give them any special treat- 
ment. I don't believe in showing 

Kehoe encourages his handi- 
capped employees to seek other, 
better jobs if they can find them 
"I don't try to hold them back. 
They are actually better off some- 
where else than here. This is be- 
cause I really bend over back- 
wards to help them, while other 
employers won't do this. And they 
have to learn that fact." 

Besides his work with the men- 
tally retarded, Kehoe carries on a 
number of other time-consuming 
activities. Of course, the manag- 
ing of the cafeteria is a full-time

Try Building Your Own! 

May 24, 1967 Page 3 


by Carolyn Pope 

'Comber Staff Writer 

Miss Letha Madge Royce, chair- 
man of the Music Department, 
has a wonderful philosophy of get- 
ting what she wants— make it 

Without any assistance, Miss 
Royce, a petite lady who claims 
she's never driven a nail into a 
board before, has built her own 

Miss Royce already owns a 
large collection of musical in- 
struments from around the 
world. But this assortment did 
not include a clavichord, a key- 
board instrument popular be- 
tween the 13th and 18th centuries. 
So when she saw a clavichord 
kit advertised in a magazine, she 
decided to order it and try to put 
it together. 

Why did she do it? "Because 
the clavichord is one of the few 
instruments that I could only de- 
scribe to my students," she ex- 
plained "And I could tell that 
they didn't truly understand what 
one was. 

"Clavichords are quite rare these 
days," Miss Royce said. "Sev- 
eral exist in museums, and a few 
are even manufactured from time 
to time But the smallest one will 
cost you $1000." 

The clavichord was very pop- 
ular during its time, mostly 
among the peasant group. "The 
sweet, hardly audible Instrument 
is a smaller version of the harp- 
ischord, and almost everyone 
had one. Both are forerunners of 
the piano." 

The basic difference between 
the two instruments is that in the 
harpischord the strings are pluck- 
ed with leather or plastic tabs 
(earlier models used feathers from 
ravens) while in the clavichord the 
strings are hit with triangular- 
shaped pieces of wood to produce 
the tone. 

"It was quite a shock when the 
kit arrived," Miss Royce recalled. 
"There were two very large boxes 
of wood, some pegs, wire, nails, 
screws, and a blueprint. I had no 
idea where to begin," 

The job of building the deli- 
cate instrument required 500 
holes to be drilled at very pre- 
cise locations, fractions of an 
inch apart. "The hardest part 
was the bridge. I had to put 53 
pegs into- the narrow, curved 
piece of wood. I lived in fear 
53 times that I would shatter the 
wood." The pegs were to ac-

commodate the 53 strings which 
give the clavichord its range of 
four and one-half octaves. 

How long does it take to build 
a clavichord? "Working as depart- 
ment head doesn't leave me much 
spare time," Miss Royce admit- 
ted. "On and off, I'd say it took 
two to three months." 

The finished instrument has a 
walnut plywood frame and inside 
wooden parts of fir and maple. It 
cost $200 in the kit form but would 
be worth about $1000 on the mar- 
ket today. 

The strings, constructed of a 
special combination of copper, 
steel, and brass, must be wound 
onto the pegs with a pressure of 
at least nine pounds. Atmos- 
pheric conditions affect the 
length of the strings, so they 
must be tuned every day. 
While the clavichord was once 
known for its very low volume, 
modern science has increased it 
greatly. Miss Royce has an ampli- 
fier and speaker which she can 
attach to the clavichord when she 
is playing to an audience. 

Miss Royce's latest collection 
piece is a two-keyboard harpis- 
chord, custom-made in Canada. 
This magnificent classic has a 
frame made of Philippine mahog- 
any, keys of walnut and cherry, 
and four springs and five pedals. 
Her next building project will be 
the construction of her own harp- 
ischord, to cost $400 in kit form. 
But presently Miss Royce must 
teach herself how to become a 
tuning expert for the clavichord, 
harpischord, and piano, with the 
assistance of a Strobo Tuner.

Display Of Off-Campus Ads 
Faces Board For Approval 

The Faculty Affairs Committee 
met last week to discuss and 
evaluate a motion which was 
passed by the Faculty Senate ear- 
lier this month. 

The motion, pertaining to the 
display of questionable materials 
publicizing off-campus events or 
activities, was passed by the 
Faculty Senate on March 9. 
It was brought before the Board 
of Public Instruction and Board 
Chairman, Dr. A. D. Thorp, re- 
quested that two items in the pro- 
posal be clarified before Board 

(1) The first criteria that per- 
tains to the word "legitimate" and 

(2) The time that would elapse 
before the Faculty Affairs Com- 
mittee would report its findings 
on any display materials being 

Since the intent of the motion 
as passed was to authorize the 
Faculty Affairs Committee to 
study any question, complaint, 
or allegation concerning college- 
approved display materials, and 
to report its findings, the com- 
mittee prepared the following 

"The interpretation of the Fac- 
ulty Affairs Committee is that the 

proposal passed by the Faculty 
Senate on March 9, 1967, author 
ized the Faculty Affairs Commit- 
tee to determine the 'legitimacy' 
and 'germaneness' of any display 
material being questioned. 
" The procedure shall be to con- 
vene the Faculty Affairs Com- 
mittee no later than three school 
days after receipt of any ques- 
tion, complaint, or allegation in 
writing, and to report its find- 
ings within three school days 
following such a meeting." 
The Committee expressed hope 
that this statement of clarification 
would enable the Board of Pub- 
lic Instruction to approve the

to the script itself but to the in- 
genuity of the directors. Mr. Frank 
Leahy is in overall charge, while 
Mrs. Lois Meyers primarily di- 
rects the choreography. The last 
time this pair worked together 
was on last season's "The Fan- 
tasticks," which was superbly 

In talking with Watson B. Dun- 
can III about the play, he com- 
mented that "The one thing I am 
delighted about is that this script 
gives us an opportunity to do 
original bits, to insert. It also 
gives the directors and actors an 
opportunity to use their own initi- 
ative, talent and insight." 

These "bits and insertions" are 
what create a rocking farce. For 
example, the Squire Allworthy, 
portrayed hilariously by Gerald 
Mathews, dashes from an offstage 

bedroom crying, "In my room! A 
baby!" The baby is a bouncing, 
bubbling little darling of two di- 
mensions cut from a slab of 
plywood. The absurdity continues, 
the Squire cuddling the wooden 
child, until he discovers that it 
has wet itself. 

Touches of technique are bor- 
rowed from sources as contem- 
porary as Batman, and as imagi- 
native as the Monkees. The set 
itself is an extraordinary work 
of art. 

In talking with the actors the 
impression was that they loved 
doing it— the freedom of invention 
and experimentation and the gen- 
eral light, farcial, fantastic air. 
As one of them said, "The only 
regret I have is that I won't be 
able to be in the audience." 
We will.

The festival is sponsored each 
year by the Florida Theatre Con-

lege, community and professional 
theatres throughout the state. 

This year's festival, to be held 
in Daytona Beach, will run June 
3-11. A play will be presented each 

PBJC was the only educational 
theatre asked to put on a full 
length play. This honor is en- 
hanced by being given the last 
Saturday night, the climax of the 
festival, for the performance. 

Watson B. Duncan III, chair- 
man of the Communications De- 
partment, reacted by saying, "It 
is quite an honor being the only 
college group invited. And it is 
also quite a tribute to the quality 
and high standard of the work we 
have here at the college." 

Three years ago PBJC presented 
Shakespeare's "A Comedy of Er- 
rors" at the festival. This was 
such a hit that it no doubt had 
a bearing on this year's invitation. 

As part of the festival the Flor- 
ida Theatre Conference is holding 
a contest for the most attractively 
designed and printed play pro-

gram for "Tom Jones." The prize 
is $25.

duction here. 

ventures of Tom Jones, an orphan 
of uncertain parentage, who is 
adopted by a rich and benevolent 
landowner, Squire Allworthy. 

Tom grows up in luxury, sur- 
rounded by servants who cater to 
his every whim. But he is banished' 
from Allworthy's estate when a 
mean-minded nephew spreads cer- 
tain lies about him. 

Tom flees to London, and on the 
way stops for the night at an inn. 
There, by chance, all of the im- 
portant characters which have ap- 
peared so far in the play are also 
staying. The ensuing bedlam and 
confusion is justly famed as one 
of the most hilarious scenes in 
English literature. 

Student directors for the produc- 
tion are Wendy Dennis and Martha 
Weldon. Mrs. Lois Meyer is direc- 
tor of choreography, while Fred 
Coggin is in charge of technical 
direction and Frank Leahy handles 
production direction. 

Stars of the play are Burt Mer- 
riam, who appears as Tom Jones, 
and Laura Lee Athey, who por- 
trays his lover Sophia. 

"Tom Jones" will run four days,

Activity Fee Blues 

When a portion of PBJC students are supplying the Test 
of the students with the benefits of student activity fees and 
nobody is receiving his money's worth; then it's time for a. 


Under the present system, students carrying 5 or more 
credit hours during the Spring Term pay an activity fee at 
registration. The student who carries less than 5 hours is not 
required to pay this fee. 

Yet, both groups of students share the programs and uses 
of the activities fees. No one checks IDs at the Beachcomber 
stands or before Lyceum assemblies. Both take advantage of 
the furniture in the student lounge, partially paid for by 
student activity fees. 

If a student is going to harvest some of the benefits offered 
from the activity fees we believe he should be paying the 
fee also. 

But wait— why should a student have to pay an activity fee 
in the spring anyway unless more activities are offered? 

There is no chorus during the Spring Term. Likewise, 
there is no stage band. Few clubs function. There are no 
Lyceum assemblies and no literary magazine. 

What does the student .receive for his $2.50? He becomes 
the proud recipient of one paper-bag colored ID card which 
entitles him to one barn dance with a local band and copies 
of the Beachcomber. 

Then where does the money go? Student Government 
receives 92c. The Athletic Department, which asked SGA last 
term for 53,000 and received $1,500 to operate during the 
Spring Term, is given 83c. It has no spring activities. 

The Galleon, whose money goes toward next year's year- 
book and doesn't necessarily aid the students enrolled this 
term, receives 33c. On the other hand, the Beachcomber is 
produced weekly during the Spring Term and is given only 
21c. This amount doesn't even pay for two issues of the paper. 

A revision of the methods of distributing student activity 
fees is urgently needed. 

Be Heard ! 

"Voice of the Palm Beach Junior College Student," a 
phrase synonymous with the name Beachcomber, is a motto 
which you, the students, can help expand. 

One of the greatest services the Beachcomber can offer 
is space for PBJC students to air their gripes, make sugges- 
tions, or voice opinions concerning campus affairs, issues or
